WASPs by Vera Williams

WASPs Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II, by Vera Williams

More than 25,000 women applied to become WASPs, 1,830 were accepted for training, and 1,074 won their wings. It is a lively, reminiscent, and beautifully illustrated tribute to these irrepressible 'fly girls' of the forties.

More than 150 photographs of the WASPs in training, on duty around the country during the war.

Hardcover - 156 pages.

Alive again

I was aware of the WASPs in World War II, but I did not even come close to knowing the acronym (Women Airforce Service Pilots). I learned via this book about the quality and quantity of contributions to the World War II effort, but also about the sacrifices and lack of recognition to them as an organization and as individuals. I observe the quality photographs in this book bring their stories to us as real people of just a generation or so ago. The quality of the book lends itself well to have out on the table so that our guests might ask about it, and we might have an invitation to inform and give a gift from of the past that might inspire us today.

Friend it was presented to loves it.

Great shirt

I bought this for a friend who is a veteran. He loves the shirt and wears it all the time.

Outstanding

Perfect just as advertised

Purchased a December 7th flag

Purchased 3 December 7th flags while on base, needed one more when I returned to Florida. I placed an order online, and when it arrived (very quickly) it was exactly what I wanted down to the name on the letter.
Thank you everyone

Flag

Did not know that the flags were available. Wonderful way to remember the sacrifice made. More people should know about this.
