‘Thrilling…true adventure stories.’ The Times

’The breadth of Whittell’s research leaps off the page in telling encounters with the now-aged survivors.’ Scotsman

‘Extraordinary stories.’ Daily Mail

‘Giles Whittell’s affectionate book reads like a Boy’s Own adventure turned on its head…and uncovers some exceptional tales.’ Financial Times

‘Reading it is a bumpy flight as well as an exciting one…the author’s enthusiasm carries the day.’ TLS

'Extraordinary stories of women who had little fear and minimal concern for the enormous step they were taking in banging “Good grief, it's a girl!” condescension on the head.' Good Housekeeping

‘An eye-opening and at times very moving illustration of the courage and sacrifice of women who deserve to be remembered alongside their more celebrated male counterparts.’ Literary Review


'An extraordinary tale of stoicism and sisterhood...their story is remarkable...this book is a fitting memorial'
