    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

    Бей Фашистких Оккупантов!! За Коммунизм, За Сталина, За Родину!!!


    I should have been a commissar
    За Коммунизм is a wrong word, soldiers never used it, after the 1943 year when the major part of peoples did not want spent the lifes for Stalin, they leave just the word- For Motherland

    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
