SynopsisAbout one million women served in the Soviet Armed Forces during WWII. Zoya Medvedeva, the author and principal heroine of this book, fought with the famous 25th Chapayev Division. She has provided an authentic, eyewitness account of the desperate fighting in the trenches for Odessa and Sevastopol, as promised to her role model, mentor and friend Nina Onilova, before the latter died in March 1942.
Review by  David M. Glantz, Editor, The Journal of Slavic Military Studies, March 1999."The genuine value of these books and the interest they are bound to generate among specialists and general readers alike argue for their wider dissemination. The books should be made available to the wider audience they so richly deserve." David M. Glantz, Editor, The Journal of Slavic Military Studies, March 1999.
Review by Leslie Blanchard, Editor, A Writers' Choice Literary Journal, April 1999."The topic has been neglected by historians in the West, and Cottam's books have done much to rectify the situation. They are a must read." Leslie Blanchard, Editor, A Writers' Choice Literary Journal, April 1999.
Review by Dennis Freeman."...This book rates up there with all other good first person experiences in WWII... Buy this one if you like war stories, WWII, or want to learn more about the Russian/German battles." Dennis Freeman.
