Women's Auxiliary Air Force
Aug 27, Samantha rated it did not like it Shelves: history. I didn't get through the first few chapters.
The book seemed to tell the same story through another women's eyes and in another area of the war. There are only so many time you can read about bombs creating utter chaos while the women stayed calm and continued with their jobs. While I admired the women I didn't think this books style was the way to read about it while staying interested.

Perhaps the best known of these incredibly gallant girls is Noor Inayat-Khan GC who was executed at Dachau in but there were many others whose stories are told here. A long overdue tribute to the courage and war-winning contribution of all its members, The WAAF at War will appeal particularly to air historians and those who were members of or are proud to be descended from members of the WAAF.
