Sinopsis: Book by Strebe Amy Goodpaster

Críticas: "I was familiar with the WASP and their patriotic service during WWII, however, the somewhat parallel story of Soviet women fighter pilots was absolutely fascinating and unknown to me. The fight of both groups to be taken seriously by mostly male counterparts in their respective countries is a story that Ms. Strebe has told exceptionally well. As a woman military pilot in the 70's and 80's, I clearly remember what we faced; but the smear tactics against the WASP when they were disbanded and the suppression of the women Soviet fighter pilots after WWII is a story everyone should read." "Flying for Her Country" will not disappoint the reader looking for a nicely written account of both American and Soviet women military pilots or military history buffs interested in all variations of stories written about women military pilots. Strebe s style of writing is engaging a particular strength of the book is its comprehensive and thorough bibliography. Strebe did a commendable job of gathering well-known and obscure sources together in her research, and this bibliography provides a valuable resource to scholars, students and interested readers. In reading "Flying for Her Country", I was humbly reminded of the debt of gratitude I owe to these courageous women pilots. They did not intentionally take to the skies with the purpose of pioneering new trails; they did it purely out of a sense of patriotism and duty. Luckily, for thousands like me, their skillful flying, powerful loyalty to country and their unmatched grace both in the sky and on the ground, successfully cleared the path for generations of women military aviators who continue to follow in their footsteps. In telling the story of these World War II heroes, Amy Goodpaster Strebe skillfully reminds us that women love their country too, and some of us choose to show it by wearing our nation s uniform. Amy Goodpaster Strebe s book is excellent meticulously researched, well-written, and convincingly argued and documented. One group of World War II participants that has been sorely overlooked is female military pilots. Amy Goodpaster Strebe has penned a fine history of women military pilots. Until now the role played by women in the air forces of the U.S. and the Soviet Union has gone largely unrecognized. "Flying for Her Country" goes a long way in correcting this oversight. Highly recommended. Before reading "Flying for Her Country, " I never imagined that the Russian women military pilots of WWII had the same values (honor, integrity, courage, commitment, faith, patriotism, service and sacrifice) as America s WWII women pilots. This fascinating book portrays a significant chapter in history that is not found in most history books. It is educational, motivational and inspirational as it chronicles the history of how these young women military pilots proved that, no matter the challenge, no matter your nationality, and no matter how difficult the mission, you can do anything, if it s the right thing to do and you put your mind to it. Amy Goodpaster Strebe has done an outstanding job researching and writing about the invaluable contributions made by women pilots in the Second World War. As pioneers in military aviation, the WASP proved to the world that they were indeed capable of flying both fighter and bomber aircraft. In the case of the Soviet women aviators who saw combat along the Eastern Front, their indomitable spirit and heroism in battle have made them legendary. A book depicting the combined achievements of these intrepid military airwomen is long over due. I highly recommend it. Strebe s book offers a beautifully written, well-researched account of a little known but fascinating aspect of World War II. Her story of these women aviators in the U.S. and USSR is both dramatic and moving. Their courage is truly remarkable. Equally amazing is the way they were treated by their respective governments because of their gender. Strebe s book is not to be missed by anyone interested in women s history and military history.

Ms. Strebe's work is an engaging and important contribution to the history of aviation and women's unfinished struggle to achieve some measure of equality in the field. Many women also yearn to know what it is to have 'slipped the surly bonds of earth ... put out my hand, and touched the face of God.'"--The Most Rev.
