Publisher's Summary

The incredible forgotten story of the WWII female bomber regiment.

From 1942 until the end of World War II, the Soviets had a secret weapon: Women.

The 588th Night Bomber Regiment was one of the most decorated units; each member had flown more than 800 missions by the end of the war, and 23 were awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union (the highest distinction).

Despite all the awards, the unit is largely forgotten now. This audiobook looks at the history of one of the most daring aviation units ever commissioned.

Not what the book says title wise

For a book that has the name night witches I heard more about male Soviet troops and German troops and only a smattering throughout the book about the night which is not enough to really warrant reading this book but I went through it anyways and I am disappointed completely zero stars

Amazing

This is an amazing story of incredible valour. Battling tremendous odds these women were true heroes. The experience was spoilt by some anti soviet parts. Occasional use of the pejorative word ‘regime’ when describing he soviet government. Some over emphasis on Russian troops behaviour not relevant to the subject. The narrator being an American didn’t sound right. All this did not detract from an astonishing account of these brave women.
