Difficult, especially girls. After all, walked shoulder to shoulder with us men, drowned in the swamps froze in the cold huts. I remember going tough fights, there were many wounded and suddenly hear the roar upcoming German, tanks, drive straight into a handful of gunmen. We are prepared to come to grips with the huge black tank with a swastika on the tower.

I grabbed a bottle of fuel, swung and threw her under the tracks tank … Oh, my God, really worked … The tank stopped and burst into flames. The men cheered and with force and fury of the machines to beat the German infantry. When the attack was repulsed, I sat silently on the ground trench.

Approached the soldiers, looked me in the eye, smiled: 'And you. Kate, well done !'… And I do not understand what they say. I did not remember what she did, I did everything as well as soldiers-men '. About 800 thousand women have fought against the fascists.
