BEAUMAN, Katharine Bentley, Late Flight Officer W.A.A.F. Wings on Her Shoulders. With a Foreword by Lady Portal. Illustration by Cecil Beaton. London : Hutchinson & Co. (Publishers) Ltd., n.d. [1940s]. Pp [1]-119,(1), frontis+ 32 pp plates. "The Royal Air Force knows well, and will always remember, the fine work done by the Women's Auxiliary Air Force in times of acute da nger and in the daily tasks for which staying-power and devotion are needed. Very little has been written about this work. It is fortunate that this book should be written by one who joined the W.A.A.F. before the war as an airwoman and afterwards served as an officer. Mrs. Bentley Beauman here describes her personal experiences in the Service. The book includes stories ofattacks on airfields and of brave deeds done in the Battle of Britain. Mr. Cecil Beaton provides additional attraction to the book by his excellent p ictorial description." - from the Preface.

Canadian Defence Academy Press, Kingston, Ontario, 2010, ISBN:9781100149394 
BELANGER, Stephanie A.H. and Karen D. DAVIS, (eds.). Transforming Traditions : Women, Leadership & the Canadian Navy, 1942-2010. Editors: Stéphanie A.H. Bélanger and Karen D. Davis. [Foreword by Vice-Admiral P. Dean McFadden]. (Kingston, ON): Canadian Defence Academy Press, (2010). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (2),i-xix,(1),1-204,(2). 8vo, illustrated white and grey card covers with gold and black lettering to front cover, white lettering to black spine. "As the Canadian navy celebrates its centennial, 'Transforming Traditions: Women, Leadership and the Canadian Navy, 1942-2010', provides a place marker for the full inclusion of women within naval history and culture in Canada. Today, many agree that a sailor is a sailor regardless of gender. While this is no doubt true in many respects, it is also true that the navy did not become the organization that it is today without some challenge and cultural growing pain. The curent status of women in the Canadian Forces' sea environment is testimony to the spirit of those women and men who served before them and, as such, the experiences shared inside this cover celebrate and commemorate those who have facilitated the contributions of women. This voume brings together a collection of leadership experiences and perspectives with a selection of research related to women in the navy. Forthe first time, the voices of Canadian navy women spanning 1942 to 2010 ar e presented within one volume. By representing this scope of experience within one integrated collection, the editors have conveyed an important message -- women have been an integral part of the navy for many years, and are committed to being a part of its future." - from the rear cover.

(4),v-x,1-259,(3).8vo, white paper-covered spine with patterned red paper-covered boards, black lettering to spine. "In June 1940, the Italians declared war on the British in Africa. Out-numbered and unlikelyto receive sizable reinforcements of men or desperately needed supplies, i t is surprising that the British even survived. But necessity is the motherof all invention, so the British got creative. Under the leadership of Gen eral Archibald P. Wavell, the commander in chief of the Middle East, the British set out to greatly exaggerate the size of their forces, supply levels, and state of battle readiness. When their deceitful charades proved successful, Wavell turned trickery into a profession and created an entirely newagency dedicated to carrying out deception. '"A" Force' looks at how and w hy the British first employed deception in World War II. More specifically,it traces the development of the 'A' Force organization, formed in Cairo i n 1941, as the first British organization to practice both tactical and strategic deception in the field. While older studies have focused on the D day deception campaign and Britain's infamous double agents, this work explores the origins of such activities to reveal how the British became such masterful deceivers." - from the dustjacket.
