Led by Marina Raskova, three regiments of all-women flight teams suffered casualties of war along with discrimination on the ground, to make significant contributions to the war effort. Includes black-and-white photographs and extensive sidebars that place these pilots within the larger context of the Russian war effort and socio-political landscape.
