From the author of Boys, Bombs, and Brussels Sprouts and The Tumbling Mirth: Remembering the Air Force comes yet another uproarious ascent into high-altitude insanity. And this time, J. Douglas Harvey includes delightful anecdotes sent to him by “WDs” -- as enthusiastic and proud as any member of the air force, the first-ever members of the Women's Division led a life that was often tough, but always intriguing. This book contains dozens of hilarious stories from WDs who recall the days when uniforms seemed to come in just a single size -- but women had to be brave in more ways than one. There is a wealth of other incident here as well. Confessions of blunders (or hair-breadth escapes) in the air, details of disastrous parades, and stories of social occasions that were sometimes bungled -- but always enjoyed. Poems, pranks, and practical jokes are all part of this light-hearted look at the air force from pre-Royal Canadian Air Force days on.
