"WASP In Their Own Words, an Illustrated History" 

This book is a labor of love, my extraordinary thank you to the WASP -- sharing what I have learned, much of it from WASP interviews with Wings Across America and my work online over the last 14 years.    It is also the most comprehensive, inspirational, ILLUSTRATED history book ever written about the WWII Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), the first women in history to fly America's military aircraft.

DETAILS ABOUT THE BOOK: The most compelling parts of "WASP--IN THEIR OWN WORDS" are the quotes from the WASP which are woven throughout the photographs copied from their personal scrapbooks.

This ultimate, illustrated history of the WASP is a graphic-rich journey into the lives of these inspirational, pioneering female pilots. It encompasses experiences from their first flights, to their entering Army Air Force flight training, to their service as military pilots during some of the darkest days of WWII, to their fight for veteran status, and to the passage in 2009 of Public Law 111-40, which acknowledged their overlooked service to their country and awarded them the Congressional Gold Medal.

The completed soft cover manuscript includes:
  • Quotes and/or stories from 128 WASP
  • 201 pages of color graphics and photographs
  • WASP classbook headshots of each of the 1,102 WASP
  • 17 page illustrated WASP timeline in relationship
  • to some of the highlights in the history of WWII
  • 8 page comprehensive WWII WASP Glossary
