Summary "More than 800,000 Soviet women fought against Hitler’s onslaught during the ’Great Patriotic War,’ 1941-45. Female participation in military conflict on such a scale is historically unique. This is the first comprehensive study of the hitherto largely hidden history of the crucial role women played in the defeat of fascism on the Eastern Front"-- Provided by publisher.
