Reviews

School Library Journal - Mary Mueller, Rolla Public Schools, MO

"Clear prose and coherent and thoughtful story lines written from a feminist perspective describe women’s contribution to war efforts and explain how military service became one of the foundations of the modern women’s movement. . . .Well-chosen period photos of the women who served are a plus, as are the sidebars and maps. These topics are often overlooked for this audience, especially those of Soviet Night Witches. A first purchase for middle school libraries." - School Library Journal

Booklist - Julia Smith

"The Women and War series examines the vital roles women have played during wartime, and this entry charts the history of the fearless female WWII pilots known as the Night Witches. . . .This book showcases how skilled, daring, and resourceful these aviators were, and it also calls attention to the women responsible for plane maintenance and repair. Fact boxes, pilot profiles, and period photos make this a lively and inspirational read." - Booklist
