#BookReview: Nadya's War by C.S. Taylor

 
Nadezdah “Little Boar” Buzina, a young pilot with the Red Army’s 586th all-female fighter regiment, dreams of becoming an ace. Those dreams shatter when a dogfight leaves her severely burned and the sole survivor from her flight.

For the latter half of 1942, she struggles against crack Luftwaffe pilots, a vengeful political commissar, and a new addiction to morphine, all the while questioning her worth and purpose in a world beyond her control. It’s not until the Soviet counter-offensive at Stalingrad that she finds her unlikely answers, and they only come after she’s saved her mortal enemy’s life and fallen in love with the one who nearly kills her.





C.S. Taylor is a former Marine and avid fencer (saber for the most part, foil and epee are tolerable). He enjoys all things WWII, especially perfecting his dogfighting skills inside virtual cockpits, and will gladly accept any P-38 Lightnings anyone might wish to bestow upon him. He’s also been known to run a kayak through whitewater now and again, as well give people a run for their money in trap and skeet.


I am a die hard history buff and this one hit it right on the head! This book grabbed me from the first few pages and I couldn't put it down it was a wonderful title about WWII when aviators that were Russian and female went up against the best German fighter pilots of the time.  And let me tell you the author did a wonderful job with this story.  I am always scared to read these because you never know how much research the author does. But this one you can tell how much the author did to make sure this was a great book.  This one has a lot of action that speed the book up and it worked so well. The characters were great and well development and the author made them come alive. The one thing I didn't care for was the ending. I think that the authors decision to hold out until the last pages really slightly sucked.  I would have liked to see the resolution to be given to us earlier so that the ending could sum up everything else.  All in all this was one great title that I know I will buying in print soon. And I will be checking out the author's other titles.
