During World War II, Felicity Ashbee rose through the ranks of Britain's Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). This well written biography covers her experiences--from tracking Rudolph Hess on radar as he flew across the North Sea, to recollections of her humorous interchanges. As an aside to her work with the WAAF, Ashbee wrote and directed sketches and songs for British officers and three of these are included in an appendix. Forty-two photographs of people, murals and drawings, many of her own creation, appear throughout the book. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
