Wives and girlfriends of commanders
William Frank Calderon. "Four Queens Who Found Sleeping Lancelot"


In this article we will not talk about the legendary Amazons or the Scandinavian “maidens with shields,” as well as failed attempts to create all-female combat units, like the Shock Women’s Battalion of N. Bochkareva. We won’t tell you something completely unique. history Maid of Orleans - Joan of Arc.



Our heroines will not be vaudeville characters like the cavalry maiden N. Durova, for whom the war was just a protracted masquerade and who, regularly receiving a salary from the treasury, during her entire service, by her own admission, killed only one living creature - an innocent one goose We will not talk about the forced performance of military duty, when during sieges of cities women went to the walls to replace the dead men.

The women who accompanied the armies “for war, debauchery and the kitchen” - ancient lixae, medieval sutlers and cantinières (from the French word “cook”), laundresses and banal prostitutes (often these professions were combined) will not be the heroines of the article. Prosper Mérimée wrote about them:

“Despite all kinds of cruelty, insults and humiliation to which they were constantly subjected in the soldier’s camps, they were carried away by the dream of booty, a well-fed life and the opportunity to find a husband.”

And indeed, sometimes a spark suddenly “jumped” between harsh and cruel soldiers and women of this kind, and a serious relationship arose.

This engraving from the mid-16th century may depict the wife of this landsknecht:


Older readers probably remember the famous French film "Fanfan-Tulip", which takes place during the Seven Years' War. The main character, played by Gina Lollobrigida, is the daughter of a French army sergeant and is in the regiment with her father.


Romantic couple - Gerard Philippe and Gina Lollobrigida in the film "Fanfan Tulip", 1952.

Nothing is said about her mother, but one can easily guess that the sergeant’s wife was not “a girl from a decent family” - after all, in this case the girl would not have had to grow up among rude soldiers. This, of course, was some kind of canteen who died of illness on one of the campaigns.

And here are the lines from a song of French sutlers of the 15th century:

“We, the sutlers, serve our masters at our own request. We steal everything we can sell. We prostitutes give ourselves up first to one Landsknecht and then to another, but we are very useful to the army! We cook dinner and sew, sweep, wash and clean, and care for the wounded. And after work we don’t mind having fun! And although the Landsknechts often treat us with cuffs, we, the sutlers, prefer to serve them.”

In 1818, in France, sutlers even received official status; each of them was given sabers - and sometimes, in the most desperate situations, they actually used them for their intended purpose.

Let us leave alone the women about whom K. Simonov wrote with amazing frankness in 1942:

“Thank you for making it so easy,
Without demanding to be called dear,
The other one, the one that is far away,
They hastily replaced it.
She's the lover of strangers
Here I regretted it as best I could,
In an unkind hour, she warmed them
The warmth of an unkind body."

We will talk about women who found themselves at war with the men they loved.

Fighting girlfriends


In history you can find information not only about the mythical Amazons, but also about real women who took part in battles, not in separate units, but together with their husbands - this greatly surprised the Romans who encountered the Celts. This custom was observed for the longest time in Ireland, where only in 697 AD. e. A law was passed exempting women from military service. It was from Celtic legends that all kinds of “Xenas - Warrior Princesses” came to cinema screens.

Voltaire unexpectedly wrote a real hymn to the fighting girlfriends of his men in his parody poem “The Virgin of Orleans.” This is how the Englishwoman who was killed by Joan of Arc's comrade La Hire is described here:

“Young Rosamore walked next to him,
Holding a sharp sword in a lily hand,
Visor, helmet, military outfit
Reminiscent of a slender page...
She walked forward fearlessly
Whispering to him, barely audible: “My desired one.”

And there really were such women. You can learn about one of them from the works of Anna Komnena. The daughter of the Byzantine Emperor Alexius I mentions Duchess Gaita Lombardi, who, “dressed in full armor,” went into battle with her husband. Anna writes that the appearance of this lady was very “menacing.”

In the First Crusade, the husbands were accompanied by the wives of Baldwin of Boulogne (the first king of Jerusalem) and Raymond of Saint-Gilles. Some high-ranking ladies also went on the Second Crusade with their husbands, led by the wife of the French king Louis VII, Alienor of Aquitaine, who was called the queen of knights, troubadours and courtly love.


Eleanor of Aquitaine and Louis VII. Miniature from the Chronicles of Saint-Denis, XIII century.

Among her companions were the wives of the counts of Blois, Flanders, Toulouse and Burgundy. Moreover, they were not at all a burden, since, according to the testimony of Nikita Choniates, they rode horses, wore men's clothing, were armed with spears, and, if necessary, wore armor. All in all:

“They had a warlike appearance, they seemed even more courageous than the Amazons.”

In one of the chronicles you can read:

“Moving ahead of the army, Alienor more than once encountered enemy attacks, and once she was surrounded along with the king and was saved only by the desperate attack of her fellow Aquitanians.”

During the Second Crusade, a detachment of women was in the army of the King of Germany and the Holy Roman Emperor Conrad III, who set out in the fall of 1147, but already in September 1148 left Palestine and went first to Constantinople, and then to his homeland.

The 50th-century French poet Pierre Gentien described in his poem a knightly tournament in which about XNUMX women took part in preparation for the crusade.

In his letters dated 1383, Pope Boniface VIII mentioned the participation of women from Genoa in the crusades.

And in one of the British chronicles it is stated that in 1348, from 40 to 50 women suddenly began to participate in tournaments,

“they spent and devastated their wealth and damaged their bodies by the abuse of laughing riotousness.”

According to legend, a certain Agnes Hotot in the 14th century managed to win a duel in which she replaced her sick father. Around the same time, Richard Shaw reports that an unknown woman won the tournament, appearing in it under the guise of a knight who arrived from Flanders.

However, it was not only aristocrats who fought dressed as men and fought with their wives.

Thus, a certain Rose Bouillon, leaving two children, in March 1793 joined her husband in the 6th battalion of Haute-Saône volunteers. On August 13 of the same year, her husband died, and Bouillon was sent to Paris with an accompanying letter to the Minister of War. The Convention granted pensions to her and her children.

Rosa Barrot, who, having changed her name to Liberte, joined her husband in the 2nd Battalion of Tarn Volunteers. On July 13, 1793, she distinguished herself during the assault on the Spanish redoubt. She served in the active army until 1804, and then lived for a long time in soldier camps, and was eventually assigned to the Avignon branch of the Paris Invalides, where she died in 1843 at the age of 71.

Henriette Heiniken, the mistress of the artillery officer Lautier Xentral, who rose to the rank of general in the French Republican Army, became his aide-de-camp. One day she led a detachment that captured a Prussian artillery park. Another time she showed decisiveness in suppressing the mutiny of the 44th brigade. In 1793, having crossed the Rhine, she delivered an important message. But in 1798, Xentral started a new passion, and Anerietta left the army. In 1810, she obtained a pension of 2 francs from the Napoleon government.

A native of Ghent, Maria-Jeanne Schellink and her husband joined the 1792nd Belgian Volunteer Battalion in April 2. She was noted in the army order after the battle of Arcola. She received six saber blows at the Battle of Jemappes and gunshot wounds at the battles of Austerlitz and Jena. By the time of her resignation in 1808, she had received the rank of sous-lieutenant, as well as the cross of the Chevalier of the Legion of Honor - from the hands of the emperor. She lived to be 83 years old.

Angelique Duchmain went to war after the death of her husband, enlisting in the same 1792nd Infantry Regiment in 42. She rose to the rank of senior sergeant, received three wounds, and in 1798 was assigned to the Invalides' Home. Louis XVIII awarded her the rank of sous-lieutenant (sub-lieutenant) in 1822, and Napoleon III awarded her the Legion of Honor in 1851.

Non-combat girlfriends


However, women did not always participate in campaigns as full participants - very often they simply accompanied their husbands. And often this led to very sad consequences.

A striking example is Cleopatra’s participation in the last war between Mark Antony and Octavian. The queen constantly argued with her husband regarding military plans, insisting that the pitched battle take place at sea, while Antony wanted to fight on land. There were constant disputes regarding the actions after the supposed victory: Cleopatra wanted to become a full participant in the triumphal procession, while Anthony understood that this would cause general indignation in Rome.

While they argued and quarreled, Octavian's general Agrippa captured the island of Leucadia and the cities of Patras and Corinth, cutting off the couple's army from its main supply bases. On the eve of the decisive battle at Cape Actium, in the presence of guests, Cleopatra served her husband a goblet of wine - but knocked the vessel onto the floor, declaring that the flower she threw at him was poisoned: thereby making it clear to everyone that she could get rid of Anthony at any moment.

After this, the Egyptian ships were ordered to engage in battle only after a signal from Cleopatra’s ship - and Antony’s 170 ships were forced to fight with 260 Roman ships. You can read about what happened next in Plutarch:

“The battle became general, but its outcome was still far from being determined, when suddenly, in full view, sixty ships of Cleopatra set sail for sailing and took to flight, making their way through the thick of the fighting, and since they were placed behind large ships, now, breaking through their ranks, they sowed confusion. And the enemies only marveled, seeing how they, with a fair wind, go to the Peloponnese.

Marc Anthony, jumping into a light galley, followed Cleopatra, without giving command to anyone.


Justus van Egmont, Jan van Liefdael. Battle of Actium, mid-17th century tapestry

Despite Anthony's flight, the ships of his squadron desperately defended themselves for several hours, and some of them for another two days. And for 7 whole days his army, which remained on the shore, waited for Anthony to appear.

Plutarch reports:

“Few saw Anthony’s flight with their own eyes, and those who found out about it did not want to believe it at first - it seemed incredible to them that he could abandon nineteen untouched legions and twelve thousand cavalry, he, who had experienced both the mercy and disfavor of fate so many times and in countless battles and campaigns he learned the capricious fickleness of military happiness. The soldiers yearned for Anthony and all hoped that he would suddenly appear, and at the same time showed so much loyalty and courage that even after the flight of their commander no longer raised the slightest doubt, they did not leave their camp for seven whole days, rejecting all offers. whatever Caesar did to them.”

Let's go back to the times of the Crusades.

On the eve of the third of them, Pope Clement III prohibited women from participating in it with a bull. However, along with Richard the Lionheart (son of Alienor of Aquitaine) his sister Joanna and his bride, the Navarrese princess Berengaria, went.

For this reason, the emperor of the island of Cyprus, Isaac Komnenos, lost his throne, who detained the ship on which these girls were sailing, and even dared to demand a ransom. The only favor he managed to negotiate from Richard was light silver chains instead of heavy iron ones.

And Richard married Berengaria in Cyprus, and later she accompanied him as his legal wife.


Berengaria by Marie Evans

The wife of the eldest son of the French king Louis IX, Philip, Isabella of Aragon, and the wife of this king's brother Alphonse de Poitiers, Jeanne, Countess of Toulouse and Duchess of Narbonne, who (on her father's side) was descended from the daughter of Yaroslav the Wise, Anna, went on the VIII Crusade. The first of them, when returning home, being pregnant, fell from her horse, gave birth to a stillborn child and soon died herself. The second, also on the way back, fell ill and died in the castle of Corneto near Siena.

The wives (and even children) of generals and senior officers were in the armies of all European states.

In 1541, at the head of a huge fleet Out of 360 ships, Emperor Charles V of Habsburg headed to Algeria. With him were the very good Genoese admiral Andrea Doria and Hernan Cortes, who had returned from Mexico a year ago. The expeditionary army was led by the famous Duke of Alba. Charles V was so confident of success that he invited many wives of Spanish grandees to take part in it, promising these ladies a “beautiful spectacle.”

Alas, during the landing near the city, a terrible storm began, it lasted 4 days and destroyed many ships, on which up to 8 thousand soldiers and sailors died. Cardinal Talavera reports:

“Not only was it impossible to unload the cannons, but many small ships simply capsized, including thirteen or fourteen galleons.”

Then the Moorish cavalry attacked the Spaniards from the surrounding hills and almost threw them into the sea, three thousand Spaniards were captured. Cortez proposed storming Algeria with the remaining forces, and indeed there were still chances for success. But the dispirited emperor ordered a retreat and, before going out to sea, threw the crown into the water, saying:

“Goodbye, trinket. Let the one who is more fortunate carry you.”

It seems that none of the ladies who returned from this excursion trip ever set foot on board a ship again in their lives.

After the surrender of the Swedish army at Perevolochnaya (June 30, 1709), about 20 thousand people were captured by the Russians, of which 1 were women and children.

But Peter I also allowed the generals and officers of his army to take their wives with them on the notorious Prut campaign. As a result, a significant part of the transport carts then turned out to be occupied not with cereals and crackers for the soldiers, but with more refined products and wine for the “noble ladies.” The Danish envoy Just Yul reports that when the Russian camp was surrounded by superior Turkish forces,

“the officers’ wives, of which there were many, howled and cried endlessly.”

One can imagine the grave impression this made on the soldiers suffering from thirst and hunger.

In 1796, Valerian Zubov (the smart brother of the most insignificant of all the favorites of Catherine II) received the post of governor-general of the Caucasian governorship, and command of the 35-strong Caspian Corps. With him he went on the Persian campaign - to protect Georgia, which was on the verge of a demographic catastrophe. He was accompanied by his mistress, the Polish princess Maria Potocka. In this section we mention her because later, in 1803 (after the death of her husband), she nevertheless married Valerian.

Camping wives


But not all military leaders risked taking their legal spouses with them. Many had “camp wives,” and this, oddly enough, had a practical meaning.

Firstly, the commander confirmed his reputation as a “normal guy”, otherwise they might have thought that he was a supporter of not entirely traditional relations - and the times were not very tolerant. It was especially bad if some cute and not too courageous-looking adjutant suddenly appeared next to the commander - like the one shown in the film “The Brothers Grim”:


French General Delatombe and his adjutant, still from the film “The Brothers Grim” (2005)

On the other hand, a self-respecting commander could not use the same canteens as his soldiers. Although there were, of course, those who were not too picky, as can be seen in the example of Marta Skavronskaya, the mistress of an unknown number of soldiers, Sheremetyev, Menshikov and the legal wife of Peter I are an exception to the rule.

And no one wanted that at the decisive moment the army commander was no longer worried about the actions of the enemy army, but about the symptoms of some “sexually transmitted disease.”

Grigory Potemkin used the services of “proven” girls” - his own nieces, four of whom were later married off to advantage. I. M. Dolgoruky recalled one of them, Ekaterina Engelhardt:

“She was prettier than all the sisters, and my uncle fell in love with her; falling in love in the language of Potemkin meant enjoying the flesh. His love intrigues were paid from the treasury with grace and various rewards, which then seduced rich suitors and delivered a strong fortune to every niece who descended from the bed of the satrap.


Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun. “Portrait of Countess Ekaterina Skavronskaya” (nee Engelhardt).

But Potemkin’s fifth niece “let down” his uncle, who was counting on her, and refused him “favor.”

Let us note that men of aristocratic families at that time regularly married cousins ​​and nieces, and simply love affairs between them were not uncommon, and therefore Potemkin’s behavior then shocked or embarrassed few people.

Napoleon was no exception, who at the beginning of 1806 fathered a child with Eleanor Denuelle de la Plenie, a friend of his sister Caroline Bonaparte.

While in Poland, he, either in 1806 or 1807, met the Polish aristocrat Maria Walewska, who eventually gave birth to his child on May 4, 1810 - a little more than a month after his marriage with Marie Louise of Austria, daughter of Emperor Franz I.

Bonaparte’s subordinates did not lag behind, and everyone was surprised by the “iron marshal” Davout, who, after the conclusion of the Tilsit Peace Treaty, was appointed governor-general of the Duchy of Warsaw created by Napoleon and started a mistress here, very similar... to his wife! She even appeared with him at official events, portraying his legal wife.

But Andre Massena, who in France had the official title of “Savior of the Fatherland” and the unofficial nickname l’Enfant chéri de la Victoire (literally “precious child of Victory”, but more often translated as “beloved child of victory”), did not bother so much. In April 1810, the 52-year-old marshal was appointed commander of the Portuguese army and arrived at headquarters with Henriette Leberton, the sister of one of the adjutants, whom the soldiers began to call “Massena’s hen,” but also his “coulevrine”: as they say, “our wives are the guns are loaded."


French culverins

On the one hand, everything is in order: the commander is a real man, not a eunuch, not impotent and not one of “those”, “nasty”. However, the legal wife of Bonaparte’s close friend, General Junot, who was with the army, felt wounded - now she was not the “leading lady.” Intrigues and scandals began, and this did not at all contribute to the normal situation at headquarters, especially since the French military leaders were already jealous of others' glory. The words Massena said after the battle of Fuentes de Oñoro became famous:

"To win, I need more troops and fewer Bessiers."

But Mrs. Leberton also made a certain contribution to the failures of the French army, since its movement and actions now sometimes depended on her mood and well-being. A case is described when she forgot her parrot in one of the villages - and the troops stopped the march, waiting until the hussar squadron sent after him brought the bird to the owner. As a result, Masséna was never able to inflict a decisive defeat on the English army of Wellington and his allies.

It should be said that many Soviet commanders also had “camp wives” during the Great Patriotic War.

How did their subordinates feel about this?

This largely depended on the personality and behavior of the temporary wives of the commanders. We can say that they definitely did not like all kinds of “bohemian ladies” - singers, actresses, who, according to a thousand-year tradition and in peacetime, tried to become favorites of rich and powerful patrons.

Women who were directly involved in military service were much more tolerant. There was no talk of any particular debauchery in this case, and modest “front-line girlfriends”, without pretending to have long-term relationships, took upon themselves the thankless task of caring for the life of their charges, giving their place of residence at least some semblance of home comfort - the task , which was difficult for male orderlies to cope with.

After all, the times have passed when commanders took huge tents, porcelain sets, silver dishes and a whole staff of servants on a campaign - from cooks to footmen. And even an ordinary colonel, by decree of Peter I of 1713, had to be given the service of 6 orderlies.

Stalin, who was known for personal modesty and strongly discouraged any deviations from family and traditional values, understood this. Stalin's bodyguard A. Rybin left the following testimony:

“One day Stalin was informed that Marshal Rokossovsky had a mistress and this was the famous beautiful actress Valentina Serova. And, they say, what are we going to do with them now? Stalin took the pipe out of his mouth, thought a little and said:
“What will we, what will we... we will envy!”

There are two more versions of this “anecdote”; one of them talks about General Chernyakhovsky.

Having learned about Zhukov’s relationship with Lydia Zakharova, Stalin allegedly asked Mehlis whether this would interfere with the marshal’s performance of official duties. Having heard the answer: “it doesn’t interfere, but it undermines his authority,” he said:

“There is no need to meddle in Zhukov’s relationship with the military paramedic. This woman helps him be healthy, and therefore stay in good shape.”

But Zhukov himself, according to the recollections of people who knew him, really did not like “front-line connections” and cruelly persecuted him for them.

But we remember that he, too, as they say, was not without sin. Even the commander of the 1st got it tank army to Colonel General Mikhail Katukov, and Zhukov issued a reprimand in the form of an official order (dated February 1, 1945):

“Into the own hands of Comrade Katukov, Popel (member of the Military Council of the Army). I have reports from especially responsible persons that Comrade Katukov is showing complete inactivity, does not lead the army, is holed up at home with his wife, and that the girl who lives with him is interfering with his work. Katukov has no authority in the corps now... and the headquarters commanders around Katukov are having very bad conversations.
It’s as if Katuks don’t exist in the units. He does not organize the battle of the corps and the army, as a result of which there have been recent failures in the army.
I require:
1. From each of you, give me a truthful, personal explanation to the point.
2. Immediately send a woman from Katukov. If this is not done, I will order the Smersh authorities to confiscate it.
3. Katukov to get down to business.
If Katukov does not draw the necessary conclusions for himself, he will be replaced by another commander.”

But Katukov loved this woman, and in the same 1945 they entered into a legal marriage.

And these days, recruiting centers in some countries directly encourage girls to join the army precisely for the purpose of finding a husband or at least a partner.

            Sometimes you just want to do it - analysis. Especially lately, when an automatic proofreader interferes even in the writing of opinion articles, confusing a prefix with a preposition, replacing some words with others. You don’t notice, and the absurdity creeps in. This is how we forget the old norms of the Russian language. Historically, these norms change every ten years, incorporating newspeak such as "unspeakable." You look, and the word becomes commonplace, appears in dictionaries...
            And that’s how it is. The world is getting used to new forms of violence very quickly. Because humanity was subjected to violence from the very beginning... So they say to us, Russians: “Why don’t you protest against this and that?” But then the counter question is: how much have you, the protesters, achieved with your protests? The world is very quickly getting used to changeable violence, sometimes taking open, sometimes hidden forms, and making it a legitimate and even routine part of its life. And the acceptance of violence against language is only part of the general historical flow, a linguistic reflection of it.

              This is not the first time I’ve written about a spontaneous riot in Western Biryulyovo after the murder of a Russian guy. Immediately, promptly, almost the next day, the *vegetable shop* was closed and subsequently liquidated. The authorities really don’t like these processes. They make them nervous.

        More. Valery casually mentioned Cortez, but he did not mention the femme fatale who helped him deal with the Aztec empire! It was a certain “Dona Marina”. The Tlaxcalans handed over a group of women to the Spaniards, whom they quickly baptized and distributed among the officers. One of them - Dona Marina - went to Cortez. She became his translator, and, in general, a faithful assistant. But the Tlaxcalans not only helped the Spaniards very much - they were the main allies!

      M.I. remained unnoticed. Kutuzov.

      Bennigsen actively denounced him on the topic of sex, for which he received a rebuke from the Tsar himself. Like, mind your own business. Alexander I himself did not like Bennigsen, who was one of the “field commanders” of the murder of Pavel Petrovich, behind his back he called him “captain of the forty-seven” (a reference to the 47 guardsmen who killed the Duke of Guise).
      But Zhukov himself, according to the recollections of people who knew him, really did not like “front-line connections” and cruelly persecuted him for them.

      At the same time, Georgy Konstantinovich himself, it seems, was also not without sin. But this did not interfere with the matter, apparently. But there was clearly some kind of discord in the relationship with Katukov. Read the memoirs of Popel (commissar-in-chief of the 1st Tank). He says the following: they say, Zhukov was rude, he always handed out life-giving food to everyone upon arrival, but (!) quickly resolved all issues with replenishment and supplies. And at the same time Popel spoke too sweetly about Khrushchev! Apparently, the memoirs were written between 1957 and 1964. Zhukov has already been removed, but Khrushchev is still sitting in the place of the Secretary General.
      About Rokossovsky - it seems to me that this is just an anecdote. Although Serova sympathized with him. I visited him in the hospital, where he was seriously wounded. But! He was also not without sin. Before the injury, he already had a woman relationship and a daughter from him.
      I don't want to judge any of these people. As it was, so it was. They made Victory. And their sin is their personal sin before their legitimate families... request

      But the main thing sex shit - there will be a traitor Vlasov.... this, as they say, is the icing on the cake to his overall appearance! And on principle I don’t want to write the names of scoundrels with a capital letter. Read about him!

And I know with what contempt, disdain and at the same time fear the officers’ wives treated this concept, which arose once during the Second World War. After all, husbands often went on business trips, to shooting ranges, and the ghost of the PPZH began to hover over the military town.

            Dima! Well, it has finally appeared! drinks )))

            No matter what he, the owner of the harem, is called, a harem is disgusting! All men have sins on the side (I believe that no one escaped such a fate), but to introduce this into the life system as one of the factors that form it, the system, is underdevelopment of the soul, feelings, lack of education in the humanitarian sense, disrespect for others, and in some cases - to the population of an entire country. Therefore, a harem cannot cause anything other than ridicule and disgust. And also ideas about the insignificance of the creator of the harem. Inconsistencies with our era.
            Indeed, a harem is an Asian concept, according to which a woman is first a thing of the family that gave birth to her, and then a thing of her husband’s family. Thing, do you understand? Thing! And this is not an image, it is so.

                Not normal.
                In a harem, a free, say, Orthodox woman loses her subjectivity, she becomes an object. This means it acquires the status of a thing with which you can do whatever you want, but it has no right to object. And if she objects, then the dissatisfied owner, in turn, has the right to throw a cord around the woman’s neck and strangle her. Now in the Emirates, the ownership of a woman has acquired a more or less civilized character, but this does not change the meaning of a Muslim woman, but only took on a camouflaged form. They rarely kill anymore. But in wild Asian regions (India, Pakistan, Kurds, etc.) it happens. It all depends on the humanity of the owner of the harem, or at least one woman.
                Here's a recent example.
                A girl fled from Chechnya to Moscow - quiet, modest, fluent in Russian. She did not want to live according to customs and asked for protection from the police. And what? A huge crowd of bearded men-relatives appeared - of course! The thing, you see, has escaped! Their personal property! The crowd was persuaded for several hours, saying that the girl is an adult and has the right, but they did not understand. But while there were graters, the girl was first hidden by friends, and then, according to rumors, they sent her abroad.
                I repeat, this is not the first time, sometimes things become conscious and rebel.
                As for mistresses, they are quite objective, independent in their actions. For each of them, a lover is only part of the life landscape. Sometimes very small.
                For the vast majority of noble women of the past, having a male husband was mandatory - status and all that. Food, clothing. Let one of these go to the front, and now you are no longer a countess - on the campaign, someone else, more cunning and quick, became a countess. So the wives went to war after their husbands, pretending that this was their natural need.

                  Yeah, what about the prenuptial agreement?
                  No, dear friend, it was just the need for thrills that played in them.

                  With the same success, the enchantress could so *chain* her *master* to herself that with sober eyes you would not be able to tell which of them is the obedient servant and which is the all-powerful master.

      Greetings, Sergey! But the mentioned poem was published precisely in 1942.

      In 41, another, my favorite, no less poignant is written:
      You told me "I love you"
      But this is at night, through clenched teeth.
      And in the morning I endure the bitter
      They could barely hold their lips together.

      I believed my lips at night,
      To cunning and hot hands,
      But I didn't believe at night
      To your blind words at night.

      I knew you, you didn't lie
      You wanted to love me
      You could only lie at night,
      When the soul rules the body.

      But in the morning, at a sober hour, when
      The soul is strong again, as before,
      At least once you said “yes”
      To me, who waited in hope.

      And suddenly war, departure, platform,
      There’s no place where to hug
      And a country car of Klyazma,
      In which to go to Brest.

      Suddenly an evening with no hope of a night
      Fortunately, in the warmth of the bed.
      Like a cry: nothing can be done to help! —
      The taste of a kiss on an overcoat.

      So that with those in the dark, in the hop
      Not confused with the previous words,
      You suddenly said to me “love”
      Almost calm lips.

      I have never seen one like this before
      You, before these words of separation:
      Love, love ... night station,
      Cold hands from grief.

    Ekaterina Sergeevna Katukova, guard sergeant major of the medical service, wounded twice during the war

    A legendary woman, a fairy tale woman who deserves a separate article.

    The wife of Corps Commander Lebedev, who was shot in 1938, went through the terrible Butyrka prison, did not break down, since 1941 she has been at the front as a medical instructor, pulled hundreds of wounded from the battlefield, two medals for Courage, orders, incl. Russian
    She herself almost lost her left arm in the battle for Moscow in the Volokolamsk direction].

I myself was wounded twice. At one Battle of Kursk she carried 49 wounded. It’s not a woman’s business to stand against tanks. But they stood! So great was our love for the Motherland.


    She devoted her entire post-war life to her husband and to preserving the memory of him and the war - she wrote memoirs, sought the opening of museums, carried out active patriotic work until her last days, and she lived 102 years, 102 years of a worthy, wonderful life.

    Respect and memory to her.....

    And these days, recruiting centers in some countries directly encourage girls to join the army precisely for the purpose of finding a husband or at least a partner.

    All they need is a bank card and its PIN code.
    Unfortunately, in the article the author mixed four different reasons for the appearance of women in the army.
    1. Warriors. They wore armor and weapons and fought alongside their men.
    2. Nobles who went to the army as if to a performance.
    3. Wives, completely legal.
    4. Those who served the soldiers.
    By the way, on point 4 there are articles about the life of the Roman legions; they write quite interestingly about the relationship of ordinary legionnaires with women.

    I read the article, it is well written and very long, with many historical examples. I just read the first part of the book about the first crusades and here I found quotes about women that I did not find in the book. I did some research and found an example of a famous female warrior named Petra Herrera, who fought during the Mexican Revolution under Pancho Villa, commanded a women's brigade of first 400 and then 1000 women, and participated in many battles.

    The article is interesting.
    My IMHO is that the approach to the question “a woman next to .....” in the USSR and even now in the Russian Federation was the following:
    - if the person with whom the woman is (no matter what status: personal, masseuse, secretary) generally “copes with the job, the management is happy with it” - then the management does not attach any importance. Or maybe even encourage his superiors... in a special way...
    - if “cannot cope, does not correspond to the position held,” then “immorality” in the form of “women and alcohol” was always taken as an aggravating circumstance. Well, now it’s possible that she’s immoral not only in terms of “alcohol and women”...

    Military examples:
    - Zamulin has negative signs in his books about the Kursk Bulge (in the form of document texts), I don’t want to drag them here, it’s an old matter and a personal one... From the modern: well, the author, let’s say, the book “Near Zero” did not take into account who he had wife, well, when something happened, audio recordings came out...

    - A positive example (it’s nice to quote here) is from V. Bogomolov: “In Poland at the end of 1944, I first heard about the conflict with the counterintelligence of the commander of the combined arms army, General G-va, about the conflict in which Stalin allegedly intervened. In 1948, the chief of staff of the guards mechanized regiment where I served was Colonel K-in, General G-v’s envoy during the war, and he told us officers in detail about this conflict - thirty years later in the military archives I found documents confirming his story.
    During the first winter of the war, General G-v was stuck in a dugout, which is why he suffered from pain in his spine, and a nurse was brought to the headquarters from the army hospital before lunch, she gave G-v a back massage. A counterintelligence officer, a captain, at a hospital feast on the occasion of some holiday, being a sapler, sat down next to this middle-aged woman, the mother of two sons who had fought at the front, and, having asked several questions, then “cheerfully and cheerfully” inquired about her relationship with commander,” the next day she told the general about this.
    Mr., being a man of strong character (this is expressed in his face in all war and post-war photographs), on the same day, in the presence of the chief of staff and other members of the Military Council, called Stalin on HF and said: “Comrade Stalin, counterintelligence is interviewing people around me. Obviously, there was mistrust. I urge you to remove me from my position until the matter is fully clarified.».
    As Colonel K-in told us, Stalin was allegedly silent for a long time, apparently digesting such unexpected information, and then said: “Comrade G-v, thank you for calling. We are satisfied with your work and trust you completely. And those people who have a different opinion will suffer a well-deserved punishment" The next day, the colonel, head of the army’s counterintelligence department, was removed from his post, and the captain, who “talked” with the masseuse, was dismissed from the counterintelligence agencies and sent to the front line as the commander of a rifle platoon.
    Stalin materialized the trust he expressed - a week later G-v was awarded the rank of Colonel General."

    You can read about Massena, the Evon women and relationships with Junot and Bessières in the memoirs of Baron Münchg....sorry Marbo. They are available on the Internet and are read with great interest. If I hadn't already lied...
    But for some reason I thought that the author would mention Gebriyan and his wife. In the 17th century there was such a simple, brilliant French marshal. Probably everyone knows the formula - amateurs fight, professionals deal with supplies? That’s how it was with them - the marshal fought, and the wife in Paris knocked on the doorsteps of the quartermasters so that her husband’s army was more or less supplied.

    The topic is certainly interesting. Frankly speaking, women in war are nonsense. A woman should give birth to children, contribute to new life, not be present with massive extermination of the male half of the earth. Once in my youth, in the mid-80s, I came across the book “War Does Not Have a Woman’s Face.” Without going into the book itself, it’s hard to disagree with the title, it’s not a woman’s business to fight, oh, not a woman’s. Even the characteristics of the female body, critical days, etc., and there are only men around. No matter how you look at it, when there are thousands young people , the very age, the blood boils, accumulates in one place and among them there are several hundred, I note, not old women, men need only one thing from them........ and you can’t go against nature. In 82 he was drafted into the ranks of the SA, went to training in the then Gorky region in Mulino. I had to go to the officers’ hotel in uniform , there was one, it was located on the territory of the unit, so young officers often spent the night there with telephone operators, paramedics, nurses, etc. There’s no escape from this. For the first six months, only two, we have no time for women to sleep and eat. But officers, that’s a different matter. Even take fiction, for example Bondarev, be it “Battalions Ask for Fire”, “Hot Snow”, “Last Salvos”, a medical instructor is necessarily a battalion commander, not a platoon commander, and especially a soldier. Tie the soldier in a knot... tie it and wait for the right moment, which we don’t know when it will come, or may not come at all, war is such a thing. As in “And the dawns here are quiet”
    - Don’t bother too much, Fedot Evgrafych. Now you are the only one left with us, sort of like a tribe.

    Laughs. And the collar is not fastened: she dumped the delights onto the fence like buns from the oven.

    - Now you will walk around the yards like a shepherd. A week in one yard, a week in another. This is the agreement we women have about you.

    - You, Polina Egorova, have a conscience. Are you a soldier or a lady? So lead accordingly.

    - War, Evgrafych, will write everything off. And from soldiers and soldiers.
    These were the times. Well, senior officers and generals did not deny themselves the choice. Everyone had PPZh, and more than one. There’s the traitor Vlasov, he left the encirclement twice, with different PPZH, but there’s no place without a woman, even in captivity and then with her. And if the commander is henpecked, then the PPzh has all the power. Even in Pushkin's "Captain's Daughter", Vasilisa Egorovna held the entire garrison in her hands in those distant times. The Germans have only men as orderlies, and we have girls on the back of the necks of hefty men... pulling, but it’s not a woman’s business, war. But the topic is interesting.

    M.I. remained unnoticed. Kutuzov.

    I think that the author intentionally did this and acted, in my opinion, wisely.

    Don't call a pedophile a pedophile? Is this wise?

    You can learn about one of them from the works of Anna Komnena


    Komnina is not a Russian surname, therefore it should be inclined like this: “from the works of Anna Komnina.”

    Am I the only one who thought that the article was somewhat squeamish towards women? As the heroine of one series said, the only difference between a woman and a man is that a woman has internal genitals, and a man has external ones. Everything else is the same. Well, a woman wants to lead a spaceship to Jupiter, so let her lead it! All this neglect of ours comes from the legacy of the Tatar-Mongol yoke. When the ancestors began to lock girls in towers to hide them from the Mongols.
    For me, some women came from Eve, and others from Lilith. If today the world is increasingly producing pederasts, then who will protect the Rod? Well, let there be several schools in the country for Lilith’s children.
