How many of us heard about these brave soldiers? Enjoy.
Kudos on another job well done, Uriel~!
Without the women the fight would have been MUCH tougher. In fact, if not for the women in the Soviet forces, Stalingrad may well have fallen.
True. But like others I forgot them. Hope it brings a better understanding for our readers.
I think we discussed this topic a while back. Perhaps a year or two. You might want to check the archives.
I remember having a debate with someone about women snipers in the USSR. And I won…lol
My mother and aunt were in the Navy (mom went in in 42) My dad went in in the mid 30’s and was gassed by the Japs in China. Got some very interesting stories from them. One of mom’s cousins was a Major in the Afrika Korps, so some interesting stuff from the other side as well. We need to hear the stories of the people we don’t think about.
“Afrika Korp”. One of the most noble Wehrmacht Armies and it’s leader, Erwin Rommel, are still honored and remembered; or were….
See another group I had no knowledge of. Thanks for adding them. Anyone else with more information, please do add.
I agree Von. We SHOULD remember and teach all the historical facts not just one side. I had no idea about the Night Witches. What a brave group! We hear rumors about female spies but nothing about them on a personal basis. Or even women in the US. Tough cookies that they were
Let’s not forget that even today in the Middle East there are women fighting to save their countries as well.
We know Nancy Wake in Australia. She’s a National Hero and a treasure and an ice-cold killer of Nazis to boot.
Good one Popular
Thanks for posting this Uriel.
We do indeed tend to overlook the service and sacrifice of our female warriors.
In my own experience, the Nurses in Viet Nam were a brave and dedicated lot, and are owed a great deal of gratitude.
I salute you Ladies !
I spent about 10 months on the USS Sanctuary (AH-17) while in VietNam.
She saved countless lives while there. I have a friend who was a medic that also served aboard her.
I’m so glad you added this song! Thank you!
Nehemiah 3:12 comes to mind. Along with other passages (long lost to my memory) where the women of Israel stood with the male defenders of the faith. Amen
Welcome RE. That they did.
