Описание: The original Italian version of Soviet Air Women of the Great Patriotic War: A Pictorial History by Gian Piero Milanetti was published by IBN Editore in Rome. This English language version of the original Italian edition produced by the same publisher appeared in 2013. In addition, there are two additional chapters devoted to ace fighter pilots Lidya Litvyak and Ekaterina Budanova respectively, while the final chapter deals with the survivors. All chapters are usually accompanied by useful statistics at the front and notes at the back. Also included is additional information in sections called Abbreviations and Translations, Rank Equivalences, Military Awards and Bibliography. It is noteworthy that fighter pilot Lidya Litvyaks still remains at the centre of controversy concerning her fate and the actual number of kills. According to official Russian sources, both Soviet and contemporary, she was killed in combat on August 1, 1943. However, to his credit, Mr. Milanetti discovered that Senior Lieutenant Litvyak--this had been her correct final rank--was seen parachuting to safety from her disabled aircraft. There is new evidence, denied by those with vested interest in her alleged death, that she was captured by the enemy, held in a PoW camp, and possibly emigrated to Switzerland, where she married a Swede and they had three children. Interestingly, the unidentified Russian former female combat pilot who appeared on Swiss television in 2000, with the broadcast seen in Russia, had been wounded twice similarly to Litvyak. Moreover, Yekaterina Polunina, former chief mechanic of Litvyaks original unit, maintained in her book titled Devchonki, podruzhki, letchitsy (Moscow, 2004) that Litvyaks friend Ekaterina Budanova had more kills than Litvyak did. Interestingly, the ongoing controversy as to whether Litvyak was or was not in love with Solomatin, one of her regiments squadron commanders, has not been resolved.
