From the back cover:
"Ann Baumgartner (Carl) learned to fly in 1940 and in 1943 was assigned to Wright Field, where one interested local, Orville Wright himself, asked her: 'What sort of a girl are you to want to fly an experimental jet?' On great part, this book is Carl('s) response...(She) is as skilled a scribe as a pilot (and her) words flow precisely and compellingly."

"Carl outlines how women performed a vital function during World War II. In her own case, she did more than merely ferry aircraft; she served as a test pilot and was the first American woman to fly a jet. Her book also chronicles the organizational history of the WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots)...(A) first-person narrative by a unique participant, it is a valuable addition of the literature of World War II."
- American History
"(Carl's) prose soars...(A WASP among Eagles) is a restrained, precise autobiographical account that achieves elegance through understatement...Clearly (her book) is a means of celebrating not herself but WASPs."
