9780099534679: Spitfire Girls

Top-class pilots were crucial to the survival of Great Britain during the dark days of the Blitz, and playing a vital role in fending off the German attack was the women’s section of the Air Transport Auxiliary, a close and dedicated circle of female pilots. Together, Edith Allam and her fellow pilots faced Nazi terror, class prejudice, and the forbidden romances of wartime — yet their remarkable strength carried them through.

"Perfect for reading this summer" * Jewish Chronicle * "This is a story that deserves telling ... it's a topical and timely read in the run-up to the 65th anniversary of D-Day" * Daily Mail * "Gould's indisputable strength is that she tells their story from the perspective of her own sex ... a highly entertaining piece of fiction - enjoy the ride" * http://spitfiresite.com/reviews/2009/05/carol-gould-spitfire-girls-review.htm *
