The Second World War.

Mariya Dolina (1922-2010), Hero of the Soviet Union, she also served in the 125th Guards Bomber Regiment (which received the title “Borisov named after M M Raskova” after Marina Raskova died in an air crash).

Today, some rightwing nutters are trying to say that women are unfit to be at the front in combat positions. That’s utter baloney and horseshit. Women proved their mettle in World War II.
