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. :)
