This history tells the story of the wartime Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) at work and play. They were no decorative adjunct to the RAF, but an integral working force that eventually saved the RAF 150,000 men, whose places they admirably filled. This book provides a bird's-eye view of their many roles.
