Vietnam From 35,000 Feet: A Stewardess Story By Joan DeRosa Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


Journey back to 1968 when the war in Vietnam is raging, when only pretty, young women in short skirts or "hot pants" are hired as stewardesses to wait on passengers, and when young soldiers are transported in and out of war zones on these iconic flights. It is war told through the eyes of a young stewardess, Christina Valle, who falls in love with an air force pilot flying reconnaissance missions in Vietnam.

Based by her airline near Tachikawa Air Force Base, Japan, Christina volunteers her non-flying time to the Red Cross. She is assigned to a casualty station that is treating U.S. soldiers wounded during the Tet Offensive. That experience brings home what the young soldiers she is transporting to Vietnam are facing.

This journey will make you laugh, cry, and maybe never look at war, or that time in our history, the same ever again.

Inspired by true events.
