A Different Perspective

today I was listening to a Stuff You Missed In History podcast

(they’re fantastic, if you like history you should check it out)

and the subject was The Night Witches,

young women in Soviet Russia during WWII that flew air raids against the Nazi’s

and I almost started to cry when I read about how some of the girls were so young that they had packed dolls to bring with them to the war.

in the US I think we’ve lost the ability to understand the impact of living in a conflict zone
