    Lily Litvak is my new woman crush! This book reads like a narrative more than a textbook list of facts, which was enjoyable. I'm sure the Night Witches enjoy more fame in Russia but I barely knew anything about them and there isn't much English material about them. Their stories are so inspiring and ought to be told more.
