About this title:

Synopsis:

This is a tribute to the Women Airforce Service Pilots WASP, heroic young women who flew military aircraft during WWII. Trained as military pilots to shuttle powerful airplanes from factories to airbases, at Camp Davis, North Carolina, a select group flew more dangerous missions pulling aerial targets as antiaircraft gunnery trainees fired live ammunition at them. The book comes alive as WASP personal letters and diaries describe what their assignment was like day to day.

About the Author: Mr. Stallman grew up in Holmesville, Ohio, a small town of 350 people. He purchased a cottage at Topsail Island, North Carolina and decided to research the island's history. He published a book ECHOES of Topsail that involved a WWII antiaircraft training camp nearby. Further study revealed the incredible history of WASP, young women pilots who pulled aerial targets over the island. His book Women in the Wild Blue...Target-Towing WASP at Camp Davis captures their story.
