"This timely book celebrates the women of the RCAF Women's Division (WDs) & Nursing Sisters during World War II. The Air Force was the first force to admit women into its ranks (First In) and the WDs remained in the war the longest (Last Out). The army and the navy women entered after the Air Force women did and left their units before the WD's thus making the phrase 'First In Last Out' a descriptive title. The air force women were trailblazers, training in roles that were previously unheard of for women.
The book documents their experiences and their stories show other young women that they too can choose to take challenging new paths and do things that may even change history."


Dr. Roberta Bondar, in her foreword to the book states "These women were performing difficult and crucial jobs, and their stories are fascinating. It is a wonderful and necessary chapter of our country's history that Glad Bryce has written about so movingly."
