    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.


      My research is specifically focused on the 46th Taman Guards Bomber Aviation Regiment (the Night Witches) but I do comparisons between that unit and the other two female units (the 586th Fighter Aviation Regiment and the 125th Guard Bombers Aviation Regiment.   A shorter version of my thesis research is published here: commons.lib.jmu.edu/madrush/2017/bombdroppingbombshells/1/


      If anyone knows of any communication sent to the US that proved that the US was aware that there were female pilots serving in combat, please let me know!
