Night Witches

Before the war both Valya and Tatyana were trained as pilots by their father.  Now, Tatyana is using her skill as a Night Witch bombing Germans during the Battle of Stalingrad.  Valya, meanwhile is told to stay at home and care for her mother and grandmother.  But then, in the space of a few days both her grandmother and mother are dead and Valya is determined to find Tatyana and join her as one of the famous night witches.

A solid story with lots of actions.  Fans of WWII fiction will enjoy this perspective.  I wish their had been an author's note about the history of the real Night Witches.
