About The Night Witches

For those of you that thought the name “Nightwitch” has something to do with witches and covens, you couldn’t be more wrong (not that we have anything against Wicca, because we don’t). The name came from women’s aviation history, the Russian all female night bomber regiment during WWII. They were a group of young women, 16 to 17 years old when they started, and they were the most decorated Russian flying group during the war.

Nicknamed the “Night Witches” by the Germans when they found out it was women bombing the …… out of them. I encourage you to follow the link below to read more about these heroic and brave women. Or better yet, come to the shop and look through the books we have on the coffee table.
