    1. pic. 2nd woman from the right, looks a bit displeased at the other girl, for some reason, jealous ??

  2. geoff says:

    9th or 10th pic down of a soviet shooter, the smiling girl looks too young. I think she falsified her age (put it up) to be allowed to jion.

  3. perristalsis says:

    Female snipers faced a fate far worse than their male counterparts who were simply executed if caught, I don’t think I need to go into specifics here about that, but I doubt any woman would want to be taken alive by the enemy.

  4. 山下智久 says:

    Germany and Russia are friends

  5. wing says:

    Not ‘shooter.’ What you mean is SNIPER – Russian uses the same word. Yes, women are involved in war just as much as men. When men go mad, no-one is safe. It’s good to see from the many posts here that Russia is cheerfully preparing for the next war.

  6. scott says:

    why is there a photo of german girls in this collection? I mean they are pretty and all, but the posting is supposed to be about the russian girls who helped defend the motherland.

    • Jeff says:

      the photo of the 2 german navy girls, the guy behind looks like he is in russian clothes. maybe they were captured

    Glorious women fighting for righteous cause only to be sent to GULAGs after the war.

    “A pilot of A-22 Boston” What is this aircraft??

    • perristalsis says:

      The Douglas DB-7/A-20 Havoc was the most-produced attack bomber during World War II. A total of 7,477 DB-7/A-20s were built, most at Douglas, although 380 were built at the Boeing plant in Seattle, Wash. The Havoc was a mid-wing, twin-engine, three-place medium bomber that earned a reputation for getting its crews home, even when both crew and aircraft suffered crippling blows. It was called the “Boston” when it was built for England’s Royal Air Force….More than half of the DB-7/A-20s built went into service in other countries, predominantly the Soviet Union.

    The war is horrible thing…I hope most of these girls survived it..

  10. openeyed says:

    The blond in pic one was sooo sexy, and she was a ‘shooter’ – infantry?

  11. George Johnson says:

    That observer on the roof, that photo looks like she’s a giant in the street. Very weird looking.

    “Not worse than men…” I love it.

  12. (r)evolutionist says:

    Woman warrior is a contradiction in terms (like “good millionaire”).

    • Tommo says:

      People like Tamara Bunke and Ulrike Meinhod would have something to say about that! In my country, I’m pleased the Australian Army is finally allowing women into combat positions.

    “A war is an awful event” Not for the anticommunist-fascist.They love misery and enjoy killing that war brings.Fascism and anticommunism is the same,only diferent name.Diferent look but same smell .

  15. Mercal says:

    Communism was built on the bones of those ‘destroyed’ by Marx/Lenin/Stalin.

    Communism has destroyed 100’s of MILLION’s of people without including war’s.

    This country is DEPRESSING without end.
