Soviet female fighter pilots of the Second World War

  1. Oct 31, 2009 #1
    Female aviation units in Russia excelled and one was even the most decorated regiment in the whole soviet air force. How much did women contribute to the fighting of the war, and why isn’t more written about it, considering how popular women’s history is these days?
