    Heinz Konsalik wrote the (fictional) novel 'Frauenbatallion' about a Russian female sniper unit and the German snipers tasked to deal with them. I found it quite good, despite some unlikely romantic storylines.

    it is the students of the Police Academy, likely future clerks and office workers.
    I think they are absolutely safe for the enemy

    The founders of Russian Female aviation during the war !
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    On a more contemporary note, no discussion of Russian women would be complete without the inclusion of Oksana Chusovitna, who, at 41 years of age, competed in the 2016 Olympic games in Rio.

    "Chusovitina's career as an elite gymnast has spanned more than a quarter century. She won the USSR Junior Nationals in 1988 and began competing at the international level in 1989, before many of her current rivals were even born. She is the only female gymnast ever to compete in seven Olympic Games, and is one of only two female gymnasts to compete at the Olympics under three different national teams: the Unified Team in 1992; Uzbekistan in 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2016; and Germany in 2008 and 2012. Chusovitina has also competed in 10 World Championships, three Asian Games and three Goodwill Games. Chusovitina holds the record for the most individual world championships medals on a single event (nine, on the vault)." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oksana_Chusovitina)
