Female Face of the War

Posted on May 6, 2013 by team


When all men die in battles or captured by the enemy, it becomes the turn of women to fight for their native land.

Some military units fully consisted of females. Did they have many chances to survive? No. But they were marching, singing, smiling and supporting each other. There were so many heroes among them.

    Death often came more slowly and horribly to women in the Vietnam war. Often they were raped and then bayoneted. Sometimes bayonets were shoved up their vaginas. I suspect it was the same back then.

    Slava Rodina. These women will forever live.

    So, only the most homely of woman were fighting? Most of these would be quite safe from molestations if captured.

      Most likely a Stereoscopic measuring device.
      When you look into it you get two different Pictures (one form each Eye). Then you turn a knob until the mesh into one at that time you call out the distance reading from the scale. Used to aim all sorts of artillery-pieces from granade-launchers to Anti-Aircraft artillery…
      (The size of the thing would indicate anti-Aircraft use)

    War is always portrayed as noble, but the truth is that the small people die while politicians and bankers grow wealthy no matter who wins or looses.

    Lets not forget that one of the best snipers of WW2 was a Russian woman who killed many, many nazis.
