Following on from her successful "Women in Air Force Blue", Beryl Escott now examines the role played in the Special Operations Executive in World War II by women of the Women's Auxiliary Air Force. Their mission was indeed improbable and hazardous, to assist the French in driving back the Germans. In view of the dangers and horrific ordeals undergone by these young women, it is miraculous that some of the missions were successful, but the cost in lives was high.
