THE FEMALE FEW by Jacky Hyams
Spitfire Heroines of the Air Transport Auxilliary
The dangers the women of the ATA faced were many: they flew unarmed, without radio and in some cases without instruments, in conditions where even unexpected cloud could mean disaster. Now for the very first time, five of these astonishing women tell their own stories, awe-inspiring tales of risk, tenacity and sacrifice told by those whose spirit and fearlessness in the face of danger still resonate down the years. So does their humility. As Molly Rose puts it:'Everyone was doing their part for the war. Ours was just a more interesting job than most.'
