Glory Girl is a great yarn with the deep historical context one comes to expect from a Peter Yeldham novel. I particularly liked the emphasis on the contribution of women to aviation history as well as the significance of the establishment of the 'kangaroo route' between Australia and England - something we take for granted now. Highly recommended.
