American Women & the Allied Victory in World War II – The WASPs

ID : 84859   
« back to classes page
The WASPs were a group of adventurous young women whose first love was flying. Initially organized to ferry new planes from the production lines to military bases in the States to free up male Army pilots for combat assignment, their duties were eventually expanded to provide other pilot-related services. As the war neared a close, the WASPs were unceremoniously disbanded and their records sealed for over 25 years. They quickly became one of the untold stories of World War II. This session covers their development and operation during the war years, as well as their post-war struggle to gain the official recognition they deserved.
