Product Description
Product Details


"Flying for Her Country is a great read! As one of the first Coast Guard female pilots, I have always been enthralled by the amazing achievements of the women who blazed the contrails of flying military aircraft during World War II. These are extraordinary tales of extraordinary women. We are proud to stand on their shoulders."--Vice Admiral Vivien S. Crea, U.S. Coast Guard--Vice Admiral Vivien S. Crea "WWII History" (2/10/2009 12:00:00 AM)
"Amy Goodpaster Strebe's book is excellent . . . meticulously researched, well-written, and convincingly argued and documented."--Air & Space--Nicole M. E. Malachowski "Air & Space" (2/10/2009 12:00:00 AM)
"As a pilot myself, the daughter of a Navy fighter pilot, and the mother of a current Air Force pilot who happens to be female, I very much enjoyed Flying for Her Country. Ms. Strebe's work is an engaging and important contribution to the history of aviation and women's unfinished struggle to achieve some measure of equality in the field. Many women also yearn to know what it is to have 'slipped the surly bonds of earth ... put out my hand, and touched the face of God.'"--The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop and primate of The Episcopal Church--The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori "WWII History" (2/10/2009 12:00:00 AM)
"In reading Flying for Her Country, I was humbly reminded of the debt of gratitude I owe to these courageous women pilots. They did not intentionally take to the skies with the purpose of pioneering new trails; they did it purely out of a sense of patriotism and duty. Luckily, for thousands like me, their skillful flying, powerful loyalty to country and their unmatched grace both in the sky and on the ground, successfully cleared the path for generations of women military aviators who continue to follow in their footsteps. In telling the story of these World War II heroes, Amy Goodpaster Strebe skillfully reminds us that women love their country too, and some of us choose to show it by wearing our nation's uniform."--Nicole M. E. Malachowski, F-15E Combat Pilot and F-16C/D Thunderbird Pilot--Nicole M. E. Malachowski (2/10/2009 12:00:00 AM)
"One group of World War II participants that has been sorely overlooked is female military pilots. Amy Goodpaster Strebe has penned a fine history of women military pilots. Until now the role played by women in the air forces of the U.S. and the Soviet Union has gone largely unrecognized. Flying for Her Country goes a long way in correcting this oversight. Highly recommended."--WWII History--General Chuck Yeager "WWII History" (2/10/2009 12:00:00 AM)
