The ATA, which included men and women pilots from many countries, had been formed to ferry military aircraft from British factories to front-line operational squadrons and would become Cochrans inspiration for the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), which served on American soil. This is Millers account of those years, written as a message to her father in the months between her demobilization and her voyage home in 1945.

It is a description of her experiences flying 50 different kinds of military aircraft in a country under siege-without instruments and in all kinds of weather, armed only with minimal checkouts, handling notes for the planes, and plenty of pluck.
