Tailspin: Women at War in the Wake of Tailhook



The scandal of the 1991 Tailhook convention will go down in history as the most sordid & divisive episode in the history of the U.S. Navy, rocking it to the highest levels. This book explores the link between the events of that night in Las Vegas & the legal ban on women in combat. That link forms the substance of this narrative as it portrays one of the most traditional organizations in the world, the U.S. Navy, on the brink of historic change. She recalls the role of female warriors throughout history as she introduces today s fierce women in the jet pilot pipeline, for whom the term armor-plated ceiling was more than a harsh metaphor.
