Description

Here is the fascinating story of the first women to fly U.S. military aircraft--the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) of World War II. Although these pioneers were never allowed to fly in combat, they did fly in many essential wartime missions--some that the men didn' t even want to take on.

Through firsthand accounts, these women share their experiences as they test-fly newly repaired aircraft, drag banners behind their planes so male trainees can practice shooting moving targets ( ), and ferry all kinds of aircraft from factories to military bases. Their courage, determination, and lively camaraderie make every page inspiring and surprising.

"Yankee Doodle Gals will give today' s young people a new look at World War II and show them just how dramatically society has changed since then.
