Abstract

This book tells the story of the original women airforce pilots during the Second World War - who they were, how they differed from the WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots), and how they ultimately became part of the WASPs. Based on personal interviews with the nine who were still alive as of 2000, on papers and diaries, and on interviews and correspondence with descendants and others who knew them, the author shows how these women broke gender and political barriers to help lead their nation to victory.
