This is a tribute to the Women Airforce Service Pilots--WASP, heroic young women who flew military aircraft during WWII. Trained as military pilots to shuttle powerful airplanes from factories to airbases, at Camp Davis, North Carolina, a select group flew more dangerous missions pulling aerial targets as anti-aircraft gunnery trainees fired live ammunition at them. The book comes alive as WASP personal letters and diaries describe what their assignment was like day to day.

About the author (2006)

Mr. Stallman grew up in Holmesvile, Ohio, a small town of 350. He purchased a cottage at Topsail Island, North Carolina and became infatuated with its history. He wrote a book about the island, ECHOES of Topsail. This led to a discovery of Camp Davis military history located nearby. Fascinated with the WWII engagement of Women Airforce Service Pilots, WASP, who flew military aircraft in missions that towed aerial targets for antiaircraft gunnery training, he wanted to tell their story. WOMEN IN THE WILD BLUE..Target-Towing WASP at Camp Davis is that story.
