Yankee Doodle Gals : Women Pilots Of World War II
Yankee Doodle Gals : Women Pilots Of World War II
by Amy Nathan
Book 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.

Hanna Reitsch

Hanna Reitch was a woman who must rank among the world's most extraordinary pilots.

Best known as an ardent supporter of Hitler, her contributions to aviation have been overshadowed.

Hanna, among her many achievements, she was the first woman to pilot a helicopter. She was the first rocket pilot. She flew a glider over the Alps not once but many times and at the age of 65 did it again, establishing a world record in the process. She flew a Storch into beleaguered Berlin, landed near the Brandenburg Gate and visited Hitler in his Bunker.
