Our women did their bit also, ive met many of them in my home village, they built bombers, they did their duty, i love and respect them., but a teenager sniper, wow !

Unknown snipes of the Great Patriotic War cool
Looking a little pensive there some of them, i wonder where they were off to , thanks for posting !
When you think of a war, you think of men fighting men. You definitly don't think about women.... At least some are still remembered such as these who are in photographs
Yes, it’s difficult to imagine the Allies sending their women folk off to war in such a manner! Obviously there were many involved in SOE, and many paid the ultimate price, some quite horrifically in some cases.
The Soviets simply did what they had to do to survive, defend the motherland and ultimate victory
A colour image of the great Lyudmila Pavlichenko.
After being wounded by a motar round Pavlichenko was sent to Canada and the USA in 1942 and during a speech in Chicago she made this statement,
“Gentlemen, I am 25 years old and I have killed 309 fascist occupants by now. Don’t you think, gentlemen, that you have been hiding behind my back for too long?!”
You have to like her style.

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
