Lily Litvyak was a young fighter pilot in WW2, flying in the most intense air battles on the eastern front. She was a bundle of contradictions: feminine and fierce, patriotic and secretive.

The menu provides a biographical overview in the “About” page and a summary in “Timeline,” as well as organizing posts by year in 1941, 1942, and 1943. Enjoy!
