A wonderfully accurate depiction of the WAAF during WW2.
on 20 April 2002
Having served for 37 years in the RAF, joining in 1948 and marrying an ex WAAF from the same period, I was lost in nostalgia and enjoyed the way the threads of the lives of the girls were woven together. The depiction of life in the RAF/WAAF was more accurate than one expects from authors writing at this distance. I could not put the book down and read it at every opportunity until I had finished it. Margaret Mayhew has either a wonderful memory of those times or access to excellent researchers or both. Her writing style brings it all to life and makes one actually feel for the characters.
