BeschreibungDuring World War II, all branches of the military had women's auxiliaries, yet the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) were the only women's auxiliary within the armed services of World War II that was not militarized. The author draws on recently declassified documents and interviews to trace the history of the over 1,000 women pilots who served their country. 16 photos.
