Summary
Early in World War II, Josef Stalin made the Soviet Union the first country to allow female pilots to fly in combat. Led by Marina Raskova, these three regiments faced intense pressure and obstacles. Many were in their teens when they went to war. Some perished in flames. This is the story of young women who wanted to defend their country, and the woman who brought them together in the sky
