Skyward : The Story of Female Pilots in WW2, Hardback Book

Skyward : The Story of Female Pilots in WW2 Hardback

Illustrated by Sally Deng



The year is 1927, and in America, Britain and Russia, three young girls share a dream: to fly.

But it won't be easy... Against the odds, Hazel, Marlene and Lilya follow their hearts, enrolling in pilot courses (sometimes in secret) and eventually flying for their countries in World War II.

Follow the adventures of these young women as they battle not only enemies in theskies but sexism and inequality in their own teams.

Risking their lives countless times in feats of incredible bravery, the female air pilots of the Second World War are honoured in this beautiful book, illustrated in Sally Deng's raw, dynamic style.
