    • This is a good, entertaining read, rich in women's history. The heroine, Violet, starts her story as a young girl going up with barnstormers with her dad. Then, against her mother's wishes, she takes flying lessons and finds love with a fellow barnstormer.But then WWII breaks out. She goes to join the WASP.

    • Jeane Slone considers her books to be historical fiction but She Flew Bombers certainly has the ring of truth!She Flew Bombers is the story, told in the first person about a young woman who joins the WASPs during world war two and transports planes from factories to bases to get them ready to use for combat.

    • Have you ever read the blurb about a book and wondered why it didn’t match your experience? This one matches and even exceeds the expectations of the blurb! Did you know that during World War II, women pilots ferried the planes needed for combat from the factories that built them to the air bases?This book tells the exciting story the WASP (Women Air force Service) through the eyes and ears of Violet Wiley. It is fast paced so I found myself racing through the book and then very disappointed t [...]

When she is old enough (about 1940) she starts taking lessons at the San Jose Airport and then, in college as SJS, takes a cl [...]


    • This book was interesting and informational, but I had some issues with it. It definitely read like a self-published book, because it was crying out for a professional editor. It felt more like a draft than a completed book. There were a lot of craft-related choices that read amateur to me, like overuse of adjectives and adverbs--especially adverbs that were redundant to the verbs they qualified--and unnecessary use of the word "very," which is relatively meaningless. None of the characters were [...]



    • 270p This well-written and fast-paced book chronicles the history of the Women Airforce Service Pilots. Women pilots were an exotic an unappreciated item during WWII, and as such, had to fight their own battles against gender discrimination before it became a problem. The same was not true of Russian women pilots. These "Night Witches" were extraordinary women combat pilots and were called that because they made their aerial raids under cover of darkness, bombing the Germans at night. The women [...]
