Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) history has been virtually overlooked for 59 years. While several books have been published about these heroines, the scope of these works are limited primarily to memoirs, which fail to present a holistic view of the WASP program, the role of women during World War II, and their contributions to our nation's defense and heritage. Here, at last, is a comprehensive book that examines WASP history. This fascinating true-life story of American women in action during World War II is presented in a chronological narrative, interlaced with an abundance of pertinent photographs and class rosters, all combined in a single, easily referenced volume. This book will educate, motivate, and inspire readers with the extraordinary lives and achievements of the first women in history to fly American military aircraft. Meet Jacqueline Cochran, a world-renowned pilot, who approached Eleanor Roosevelt with an idea to employ female pilots in various types of support operations, such as flying transports, couriers, and ambulances, thus freeing up the men to serve as combat pilots. Meet Nancy Harkness Love, Cornelia Fort, and other selfless patriots. These "sisters of the sky" loved their country, and despite oppressive restrictions and innuendo of their frailties, they blazed new trails for the women of America.
