What’s the inside story of the book?
The book starts with Cornelia Fort who started her career as a flight instructor in Hawaii. The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and the books say, Cornelia was one of the air pilots among others.
She was instructing certain things to her students. Suddenly, unexpected bombs started to fall off to the ground. Due to the attack, the United States Army Air Forces started to recruit women pilots and Cornelia was one among them to fight the enemies.
Out of 1000 women from different places and nations, she was elected to be one of the pilots and earn silver wings.
Moreover, this paved a way for Women Airforce pilots to show that they are equally capable and powerful and can destroy the enemies just as men.
Cornelia got a chance to be with the trained pilots, Nancy Love and Jacqueline Cohran and they provided a chance to Cornelia for serving their country.
Furthermore, the Women Airforce pilots provided space for male pilots to service and destroy the enemies forever. However, many of the women pilots lost their lives in the war.
Still, their sacrifice led to the great success that will be remembered and cherished forever. After the war was over, all of them went back home with pride.
The most important thing that strikes the readers is in their minds is one thing. They might have gone in separate ways after the war was over, but they had a strong connection. After that, for many years, all the women pilots had served as military veterans.
The novel shows us the value of friendship, teamwork, and the power of women which makes the readers have goosebumps.
