The "Night witches" were soviet young women, flying crop dusters and dropping bombs at night. Most were barely out of their teens. Nadezhda volunteered for the war, but was initially denied, later the Soviets formed 3 all women squadrons, and she would eventually be commander of one. She was shot down several times, but managed to make it back to her unit.
