Summary (From the publisher):

Singing ‘Rio Rita,’ 15-year-old Mucha trudges along the road to her execution. But much more than death Mucha fears expulsion from the Collective in which she fills a real and useful part. The comrades come to her when they need warmth and tenderness and she’s happy in this role. (Although someone really should tell Stalin or Hitler that they need to make knickers with better elastic!) During the siege of Leningrad, Mucha takes flight over her beloved city. She sees Stalin sitting on a red star on top of the Kremlin, smoking his pipe and drinking tea and wondering what further anguish he can inflict on his people.

The Naked Pioneer Girl is a searing indictment of war and a devastating look at the role of the Russian army during WW2.
