Re: Does anyone know of any information relating to the soviet female bomber pilots that served during WWII? They're best known as the Night Witches.

Hi, Yasmine,
I don't know about US communications about the Night Witches, but I assume you've watched the 1981 documentary about them (it's called Night Witches and is available at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdpL2DKF8kOioG5ddT0580VLTfnQT7X1i. There was evidently an attempt to make a theatrical film a few years ago but I haven't been able to figure out if it is actually in production or not.

I'm working on co-authored book about depictions of military women in film and will keep my eye out for more information.
