Highly experienced author John Frayn Turner has succeeded in capturing the indomitable spirit of the WAAF during WW2. His book vividly describes the many roles played by members of this highly respected organization, whether on the ground at air stations, under the ground in control bunkers, reading radar monitors or plotting the course of air operations.In addition the WAAF flew all types of aircraft, often with minimal training, regardless of weather.Most poignant are the hazardous exploits of those WAAF who volunteered for SOE. Perhaps the best known of these incredibly gallant girls is Noor Inayat-Khan GC who was executed at Dachau in 1944 but there were many others whose stories are told here.The WAAF at War is a long overdue tribute to the war winning contribution played by all its members.
