NIGHT WITCHES

I found this story, as I find many, just reading the newspaper. This is the story of the only all female combat unit in the history of warfare. At the outbreak of war on the Eastern Front, Russia, Marina Raskova, the Amelia Earhart of the Soviet Union, convinced Joseph Stalin to create an all-female bomber unit to stop the Nazis. These were teenage girls. The oldest was 25.

They trained, fought, and died fighting the Germans. They were the most decorated air unit in the Soviet Army.

It was a great honor to write this. And my time spent in Moscow researching this was one of the most meaningful adventures of my life. I have developed a deep respect and love for the Russian people. This is my Valentine to them. We will shoot this in early 2016.
