please head on over to beforewegoblogcom Women s roles in war are always played down or seen as insignificant Evenhead on over to beforewegoblogcom Women s roles in war are always played down or seen as insignificant Even often women played a huge role in major battles or information gathering During world war II women took over major industrial roles typical staffed by men Women built ships armaments and trucks They took over massive uipment operation and difficult hard labor For the US women staffed over 400000 support staff positions assisting in the war Le Prince effort of US militaries They aressential but often their stories are not told Enter Garth Ennis of Preacher and The Boys fame Plus about twenty other as great series He is known for his deep storytelling and no holds barred dialog Pretty much anything goes when it comes to an Ennis novel This is an important point to bring up because The Night Witches is based on a real suadron of female fighter pilots during World War II Ennis had to mix his gritty storytelling and balance it against any accurate details he can glean from actual true Questions Diplomatiques Et Coloniales Vol 19 even as fighters in general with Warfare is the one human activity from which women with the most insignificantxceptions have always and Historia General De Espa A Vol 5 everywhere stood apart women never in any military sense fight men 1 Little is known specifically about The Night Witches the soviet government has set to downplay its reliance on female personnel But much can be guessed from the few personal histories that survived In response Ennis has created a character that is a composite of the available information about female fighters at the time in the form of Anna Kharkova1 The premise of the story is disjointed and I found it challenging to follow but loosely it is about a group of women named The Night Witches or or in German die Nachthexen The Germans dubbed them their moniker They flew nighttime bombing raids and supported Russian defense and offense Anna fliesverywhere and in all sorts of battles She has love affairs loses friends kills people and as the story progresses you can tell that little bits of her soul dies I think that it is the chaotic and disjointed nature of the story that makes it confusing I liked Anna as a character I Oekonomisch Technologische Encyklop Die Vol 39 enjoyed her fierce nature andven though she is tiny she is big in life and personality Those who seek to underestimate her do it only once But I did not connect with her as a character xcept the little snippets of dialog that resonated with me Graphically Russ Braun and Tony Avi a s artwork shine It is gorgeously done with massive air gun battles and vivid war scenes The artwork is almost reminiscent of World War 2 recruitment and propaganda posters You feel like you are there in the scenes This story is a hard one to
judge because on the one hand the artwork and war scenes are some of the best I havebecause on the one hand the artwork and war scenes are some of the best I have Snippets and vignettes of Anna s trials as a fighter pilot and on into POW camps are poignant and masterfully done But as a whole the story is too disjointed for me to care about Anna genuinely Or understand the gravity of her actions at the nd I recommend it for the artwork and because it is Ennis because Oeuvres De Monsieur Houdar De La Motte Vol 9 even bad Ennis is still a cut above most other storytellers but I don t think this is his best work1 I don t think I liked a single thing about this book As a history buff I know a little about the Night Witches But I have to tell you this book surprised me The story and art uality are top notchspeically for a historical graphic novel The historical accuracy is strong but with the author s notes in the back help clear up any issues It is a fiction story but one can still grab lots of inform. As the German Army smashes deep into Soviet Russia and the defenders of the Motherland retreat in disarray a uniue new suadron arrives at a Russian forward airbase Like all night bomber units they will risk fiery death flying obsolete biplanes against the invader but unlike the rest these pilots and navigators are women In the lethal Alerted the Germans before their aerial night attacks so the aviators developed a techniue of cutting the Psychologie Der Sprachp Dagogik engines and gliding over their targets before dropping their bombs You know what it s like when a PO 2 comes along if you re on the ground you can hear it for miles that pop pop popping thengine makes Two missions like that and we ll all be done with unless we can magically stop them from hearing us comingTheir method of attack was uniue and terrifyingly ffective at robbing the invading troops of sleep and peace of mind The Germans called these pilots because they were women and attacked
