Fly girls ( visu )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 556 libraries worldwide
In the midst of World War II, the call went out: women with flight experience were needed to fly for the military. All over the country, young women postponed their weddings, put their educations on hold, and quit their jobs to respond, becoming Women Airforce Service Pilots or WASPs. Led by Jacqueline Cochran, America's foremost female aviator, more than 1,000 women were trained to ferry aircraft, test planes, instruct male pilots, and even tow targets for anti-aircraft artillery practice. Despite serving with grit and determination from 1942 to 1944, these brave women pilots had no official military status, thus no benefits, although 38 gave their lives. In December 1944, the WASP program was disbanded. It would be more than thirty years before women would fly again for the US military

Now his name divided North from South. Was he a martyr or a madman, a fanatic or a hero? More than a century later, John Brown--who helped bring on the bloodiest American upheaval ever--remains one of America's most controversial and misunderstood figures
