I know we have several folks on here that are WWII buffs.  This book was a very interesting read with much of it fact based from interviews with women from the Red Army 588th Night Bomber Regiment.  It also documents the trials of women's struggles to contribute to the war effort in Russia.  I highly recommend it.

I just picked this up last week and had trouble putting it down. I think a lot of our independent women would find it very interesting too. :)

Yes, they called them : The Night Witches. I haven't read that particular book but I know about them and their night raids. We even incorporated them into one of our DLCs. Panzerkrieg.

By extension buddy, I have to wonder if anyone has published a book on the female Soviet snipers of WWII. Those women were freakin' deadly.

There was one called Pretty Birds about the Serbs and Muslims, but I haven't seen one for the WWII era.

I'm not sure I'd qualify as a WWII buff, but I've enjoyed the fact-based literature I've read concerning it. I appreciate the recommendation.

Biggles was the true hero of my childhood.

And he was a fictional character.

I'm just glad, that choppers can land with the auto. That's both a curse and a blessing.
