Fly Toward Death
Machine gun fire and rifle bullets zinged all around her as she maneuvered her plane to drop her bombs. Her fragile, two-seated World War I biplane was flying low enough for her to hear the Germans screaming and yelling, as she pressed forward to her drop zone.
This was a typical flight of many during one night’s sorties. The German soldiers feared and hated the women they called the Nachthexen: Night Witches. There were three all-female aviation regiments in the Soviet Union during World War II. This is a story of the female heroes who flew and worked under incredibly adverse conditions. From women who flew the little, unarmed biplanes and bombed the Germans at night; to the fierce, female fighter pilots who fought the seasoned German Luftwaffe, humbling them before their peers.
This is a fictional account, based on true stories, of the amazing women who lived, loved and died bravely during the dark days of World War II.
