Summary
While their husbands, brothers, and sweethearts fought in Europe and their mothers, sisters, and friends kept the home fires burning, for the first time, a group of remarkable women took to the skies. They weren't allowed into combat but risked their lives in often bad weather and without radios to bring their boys the aircraft they so vitally needed. Employed by the Air Transport Auxiliary, these women were known as 'attagirls'. They proved that women too could master Spitfires, Mosquitoes, and Hawker Hurricanes, forging a new path in aviation
