In this comprehensive account of the US Army Air Forces flight nurse program in World War II, stories from Dr Barger’s interviews with 25 former World War II flight nurses bring to life a long overdue tribute to these military nurse pioneers.

Dr Barger is a retired US Air Force nurse who served as a flight nurse at Clark Air Base in the Philippines, 1973–1975.
