Military Review

War has a feminine face

54
In the last decade of February a feature film “Battalion” about the first in the Russian stories female military formation. The picture together with the film group was viewed by the president of the country, the criticism warmly responded. The film became a cultural event of the month. But not artistic merit attracted attention to him, but historical parallels.



From the St. George Knight to the Knights of the Order of Glory

The name of the full George Knight, shot by the Bolsheviks in the year 1920, the commander of the death battalion of Maria Bochkareva, was banned for a long time. Therefore, its history has been little studied. In it, and today a lot of obscure. One thing is obvious - at the very end of World War I, a woman stood up in the Russian army. Maria showed herself in the first battle. She not only withstood the onslaught of the enemy, but also endured more than seventy wounded soldiers after the battle. So M. Bochkareva received her first George.

Examples of participation in the hostilities of Russian women have met before. For the time being, the cavalry-maiden Nadezhda Durova was better known. She was remembered after the film “Hussar Ballad”, which passed on the screens of the country in the middle of the last century. No matter how the creators of the picture reproached that Shurochka Azarov has nothing to do with N. Durova, people simply did not have another type.

War has a feminine face


Maria Bochkareva is another matter. In the film she is under her own name and in real-life events. A rumor about the women's death battalion, which defended the Provisional Government in the Winter Palace to the last, lived among the people. This is after the rehabilitation of M. Bochkareva in 1992, we learn some other details. In fact, on the white banner of the new formation there was a slightly different inscription: "The first women's military team of the death of Maria Bochkareva." He was called the battalion simply because the number of people in 500 was more appropriate for just such a unit. Maria from 2000 volunteers challengers recruited them. However, the rest also did not dissolve into the world. Later, the Provisional Government will form three more female infantry battalions. It will happen closer to the fall of the 1917 year. Because they really didn’t have to do some fighting, and women soldiers will be remembered only by their steadfastness in defending the Winter Army.

The scale of the Great Patriotic War overshadowed the military affairs of the first female military battalions of Russia. During the war, more than 980 women were drafted into the ranks of the Red Army. Of these, three aviation regiment - 46th Guards Night Bomber, 125th Guards Bomber, 586th Air Defense Fighter Regiment. A separate female volunteer rifle brigade, a separate female reserve rifle regiment, and a separate female company of sailors also took part in the battles. There were also women sappers, nurses, signalmen, tankmen ... and, of course, we must not forget the military unit located deep in the rear - the Central Women's School of Snipers. There are many legends about her graduates. However, these are not legends at all, but real military deeds. Here is the Hero of the Soviet Union Lyudmila Pavlichenko (nee Belova). She owns the sniper record of the war - 309 killed enemy soldiers and officers, including 36 enemy snipers. By the end of the war, seventeen female snipers had had more than a hundred dead.

There were many such feats. For actions in the war 90 women awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union. I always believed that most of them were famous front-line pilots (31), then snipers. But no. In the second place in the series of Heroes - underground workers and partisans. Awarded 28 people. Almost everything is posthumous. Here is the highest percentage (exactly half - 14) awarded after the war, when it became known about the unprecedented feat of these wonderful women.

Well, there is also the main soldier's reward of war - the Order of Glory, which replaced the St. George Cross, but retained the black-orange ribbon under the inheritance of the brave warriors at the gymnasts. In the Great Patriotic War, four women became full holders of the Order of Glory. Let me remind them of their names: air gunner-radio operator Nadezhda Aleksandrovna Zhurkina, sanitary instructor Matryona Semenovna Necheporchukova, sniper Nina Pavlovna Petrova, machine gunner-gunner of the easel machine gun Danute Yurgio Stanilienee.

Life after the war taught us to appreciate the soldiers on the number of awards on their chest. Somehow you think a little that for women the very fact of being at the front in the harsh conditions of domestic and hygienic restrictions, in conditions of deprivation and mortal danger, is already a feat. Yes, and rewards began to encourage fighters at the turn of the war, after heavy defeats and countless losses.

In the rear, both at the front

The women of the rear with awards almost did not spoil. It is only later, after the war, in June 1945 will establish the medal "For Valiant Labor in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945." For many years, it will be given to sixteen million people. How many of them are women? Nobody led the gender statistics. But there is other data. By the end of World War II, women made up three-quarters of the workers on collective and state farms, more than half in industry. They went to coal mines and to mines, to forges and foundries, to lay railways and metallurgical enterprises. I found from that time ... In March, 1942 41 women worked in the country's coal mines in March, and by the beginning of 010, their number had already increased to 1943 66 people.

Never been to Georgia. I could not even imagine that there are coal mines under the gardens and vineyards. But I met a note as the housewife Zinaida Muzhitskaya became the first woman in Georgia, who mastered the profession of a coal mining. On the holiday of 8 March, 1942, she completed a shift task with 1336 percent. Several standards were given by her colleagues Pama Abesadze and Euphrosyne Green.

Stories about the heroic work of Russian women during the war years will surprise us little. Hooked on the mention of an old publication Georgian name. Hence, the Georgians did not lag behind. How surprised the women of the East! In the 1944 year, for example, in Azerbaijan they accounted for 61,7% of tractor drivers, 52,2% of assistants to combiners, 35,1% of repair workers and 25,4% of chauffeurs. These figures do not differ much from those in our Siberian villages, except that the percentage of tractor drivers here reached 81.

Or here's an example from little Kyrgyzstan. At the end of 1943, 1222 women worked on the republic’s railway transport. Two of them - Alisa Omurova and Dzhamira Dzhusupova - became train drivers of locomotives.

Another fact finally touched me: during the war years, Uzbek women surrendered for the front 38 725 liters of blood. Later, driving through the city, I met a gaggle of visiting migrant workers and thought: didn’t their loved ones helped my relatives to get out of the heavy front-line wounds? ...

… Victory has many faces. Made up of different puzzles of the war. And this picture became a reference point for many years. We are lucky, our generation has grown up with the winners. In ordinary life, their influence did not seem to be felt. But when the hour of battle came, the grandchildren were not inferior to their grandfathers. So it was when my fellow countryman - a simple rural guy Nikolai Anfinogenov, covering the retreat of fellow soldiers in Afghanistan, blew himself up with a grenade along with the dushmans. For which he was awarded the high title of Hero of the Soviet Union. So it was on the Chechen borders, where in an unequal battle the sixth company of the Pskov paratroopers fell, but did not retreat. The memory of her is revived every March. So it was at an unnamed skyscraper near Debaltsevo, where they burned down in tanks Donetsk guys, taking back their land from the nationals. We have yet to evaluate their high deeds. One thing is obvious - we equate every feat of new heroes according to the highest bar set by the front-line soldiers of the Great Patriotic War. Here the most striking example for us is women who, in a difficult time for the Fatherland, took in their hands weapon or downhole mines ...

        My father’s uncle, a front-line soldier, told me that he saw near Rostov how women anti-aircraft gunners fired on German planes. The men scattered after the first bombs from the dive bombers, and they screeched, but fired. He himself was struck by the anti-tanker with the courage of these women.

            Lyudmila Pavlichenko, by the way, was friends with Eleanor Roosevelt ... A woman is not just heroic, but a world-wide human being, gave speeches in the USA, read, if anyone is interested ...
            I kind of already printed an excerpt, I repeat again, from Wikipedia:
            Later, Eleanor Roosevelt invited Lyudmila Pavlichenko to travel around the country. Lyudmila spoke to the International Student Assembly in Washington, to the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO), as well as to New York, but many remembered her performance in Chicago. “Gentlemen,” a clear voice rang out over the crowd of thousands. - I am twenty five years old. At the front, I already managed to destroy three hundred and nine fascist invaders. Do you not think, gentlemen, that you have been hiding behind my back for too long ?! ” The crowd froze for a minute, and then exploded with a frantic noise of approval ... In America, they gave her a Colt, and in Canada - a hard drive (the latter was exhibited at the Central Museum of the Armed Forces). Woody Guthrie, an American country singer, wrote the song "Miss Pavlichenko" about her.

    Later, the Provisional Government will form three more female infantry battalions.

    The Februaryists first overthrew the monarchy, and then destroyed the army (now everyone knows that the Bolsheviks did it). Having destroyed the army, they invented "shock units" and "death battalions", which enjoyed a dubious reputation in the army, and then they decided to make a knight's move and assemble the first women's battalion.

    Because they really didn’t have to fight

    There is only one known battle in which this unit took part - the "shock women" bravely rose to attack, but the soldiers did not, the Germans hit with artillery and the women, forgetting what they had been taught, rushed about among the explosions. The attack failed. The shell-shocked Bochkareva was taken to the hospital. That's all.
    According to Denikin's recollections, the front-line soldiers called "shock women" - prostitutes, and they had to allocate forces to protect the "shock women" from the soldiers, the general himself was skeptical of this unit, to put it mildly.

    and women soldiers will be remembered solely for their staunchness in defending the Winter Palace.

    Persistence was as follows -
    - after waiting out the rifle and machine-gun shelling from 21-00 to 22-00, which for some reason is called the first assault on the Winter Palace, 137 "shock women" of the women's battalion of death (2nd company) jumped out of the Winter Palace, ostensibly on a sortie, supposedly to free General Alekseev, the chief of defense of the Winter Palace, Colonel Ananyin, tried to stop them, but the "shock workers" were not interested in the orders of the immediate superiors, since the Winter was blocked by the 2nd company of the women's death battalion in full force, was captured. What was it - cowardice or idiocy, I'm afraid we will no longer know.
    The 2nd company did not suffer losses in the "staunch defense". After being taken prisoner, they were placed in the barracks of the Pavlovsky and Grenadier regiments. There were three cases of rape, one suicide. Bochkareva from the front rushed to St. Petersburg to sort it out. Arrested. Released. John Reed in his book "Ten Days That Shook the World" wrote that the suicide left a note, like she was disappointed in her ideals.

    Something like that. hi

    PYSY- if the Ministry of Culture decided to talk about women heroes of the First World War, then we should talk about such people as Alexander Danilov, Kira Bashkirov, Lyudmila Chernousova, Antonina Palshin, Rimma Ivanova and so on, and not make a movie about dubious personalities like Bochkoreva, but maya what is maya. request

      PYPYSY - once again about cinema. I think many have seen the film "Admiral" there is a scene when a nurse led the attack against the entrenched Bolsheviks, and when she was killed, the angry whites simply swept away the damned Reds in the blink of an eye. Do you remember? So it was, but the screenwriter is a liar! In our reality, this happened on September 9, 1915 near the Carpathian village of Dobroslavka. The 105th Orenburg Infantry Regiment attacked the enemy. Mingling under the destructive fire, the battalion wavered and began to withdraw. And, probably, he returned to his trenches, if suddenly, among the explosions and shots, a woman's voice sounded hysterically: "Where are you, here are the wounded!" A nurse rose from the funnel, around which two dozen soldiers immediately huddled. Fright and confusion in the girl's gaze was replaced by decisiveness. And she threw herself forward, pulling with her the perked up chains. The attack turned into hand-to-hand combat, which ended in a Russian victory. But the girl did not see it any more: she fell several tens of meters before the enemy trenches, beveled by a machine-gun burst together with several fighters who had fled nearby ...
      On September 17, at the highest command of Emperor Nicholas II, the nurse was posthumously awarded the Order of St. George of the 4 degree, which could only be awarded to officers.
      But in this case, the sovereign found it possible to violate the statute of the most honorable military award.

      But who from the world of modern Russian cinema needs the truth when they shoot a film about "the crunch of a French roll?"

      Yes, by the way, the name of the nurse - Rimma Mikhailovna Ivanova, besides this posthumous award, she had others -
      - For the salvation of the platoon commander ensign Sokolov, she was awarded the St. George medal "For Courage" 4-th degree;
      - for the removal from the battlefield of the wounded company commander Lieutenant Gavrilov and the restoration of the communication line - the same reward of the 3 degree;
      - for the removal from the battlefield of Colonel Regiment Commander A. A. Graube, she was awarded the soldier George Cross of the 4 degree.

      But films are shot about criminal Bochkareva, which cannot but upset.

          A feature film differs from a documentary in that it contains fiction, but we are talking about a deliberate falsification of our history, when the feat of Rimma Mikhailovna Ivanova at the front was attributed to an unnamed nurse in the fight against the Bolsheviks, like the entire film "Admiral" this is an outright lie and an attempt vilification of our ancestors.

          Further, about the criminal, you took it from what sources !?


          What sources did you get the information from? The source you mentioned telling the biography of Bochkareva is based on the book "Yashka", written by Isaac Don Levin, who reworked Bochkareva's stories about her life.
          In this biography, a lot of moments are omitted, for example -
          - that Bochkareva knew and at least covered the gangster activity of her husband Buka in Tomsk;
          - that Bochkareva, together with Buk, opened a butcher shop in Yakutsk as a cover for gang activity;
          - that 2 000 candidates didn’t pass from 1 700 because of the strict selection, but because in particular Bochkareva beat the candidates, which were reported to the higher authorities and there were many, but since Bochkareva secured the support of Kerensky’s wife and according to Kerensky himself, the reports went under the cloth.

          Well, you can still believe Bochkareva - especially how the governor of Yakutsk Kraft I.I. (an outstanding person who has done a lot for the development of Siberia). Residents of Yakutsk I think they can tell me better about Kraft’s activity, but if you think that he desired this, I wash my hands. request

              They were distinguished by the fact that the former showed at what price our grandfathers achieved victory, and the latter earned money not on the box office but on the order.
              Frank chernukha in our cinema is simply amazing in its unscrupulousness.
              As an example, the film is Bastards, and after all, such films should not be surprised at the lies that are now being put into the heads of the citizens of Ukraine, and ours too.

      "There is only one known battle in which this unit took part."
      I agree with you that you can find more worthy candidates for praise, but since Bochkareva was already talking here, why are you trying to deprive her of all her merits?
      You can draw an analogy: during the Second World War criminals participated in the penal battalions, and that, in your opinion, there could not be heroes among them just because they were criminals?

      "Yashka" fearlessly went into bayonet attacks, pulled out the wounded from the battlefield, was wounded several times. "For Outstanding Valor" she received the St. George Cross and three medals. She is awarded the rank of junior, and then senior non-commissioned officer.
      On June 23, an unusual military unit went to the front. Life immediately dispelled the romance. Initially, they even had to put sentries at the battalion's barracks: unbridled soldiers molested the "women" with unequivocal proposals. The battalion received the baptism of fire in fierce battles with the Germans in early July of the seventeenth year. One of the reports from the command said that "Bochkareva's detachment behaved heroically in battle," set an example of "courage, courage and calmness." And even General Anton Denikin, who was very skeptical about such "surrogates of the army", admitted that the women's battalion "valiantly went on the attack", not supported by other units. 

      http://amnesia.pavelbers.com/Moi%20arhiv3-1.htm
      Denikin admitted that the battalion valiantly went on the attack, but you did not. But you probably know better.
      And the fact that the soldiers molested the "women" only speaks of the moral level of the soldiers, but not the "women". Or do you refer to those for whom the woman is always to blame "it is her own fault"

          I agree, I'm not right about criminals in penal battalions.
          I just wanted to say that not very virtuous behavior in civilian life does not mean that this person cannot show heroism in wartime. This is in response to the phrase Karlsonn

          - that Bochkareva, together with Buk, opened a butcher's shop in Yakutsk as a cover for bandit activities;

        You can draw an analogy: during the Second World War criminals participated in the penal battalions, and that, in your opinion, there could not be heroes among them just because they were criminals?
        There were no felons in the penal battalions. It is a myth.
        Officers who violate military discipline were sent to fines. For the rank and file, there were penal companies.
        About criminals and the obligatory "washing off guilt with blood" is a myth launched under Khrushchev and promoted under Gorbachev.
        There were no criminals there.
        The duration of stay in penal companies and battalions was fixed and did not exceed 4 months.

          Soldiers were sent to penal battalions by order of the division (corps, army, front - in respect of units of the corresponding subordination), and to penal companies - by order of the regiment (separate unit) for a period of 1 to 3 months.
          A wound received even on the first day of stay in the penal unit automatically returned the soldier to the unit to the same position, in the same military rank, so the service in the penalties when the battles went on was considered not even days, but hours.
          Not only the guilty military personnel were sent to the penal units, but also those convicted by the judicial authorities were sent, but the courts and military tribunals it is forbidden to send convicts to fines for counter-revolutionary crimes, banditry, robbery, robbery, recidivist thieves, persons who had a previous criminal record for the above crimes, as well as repeatedly deserted from the Red Army.

The convict served a term from six months to five years from call to call, nothing influenced the length of the sentence - neither injury, nor heroic behavior. No "I will expiate with blood!", As in the aftermath of the penalized Soviet companies that arose, did not pass. From the hospital, the soldiers again returned to their native penal battalion.

    In the Soviet version of the history of the beginning of the twentieth century, the drummers of "female death battalions" with a light hand of Vladimir Mayakovsky entered as "Bochkarev fools." Indeed, the participation of the Bochkarev ladies in the defense of the Winter Palace on October 25 (November 7) of the 1917 of the year resembled an operetta. But now the “epic” called “The Battalion” has appeared on the screen (another name is “The Battalion of Death”).
    The film was supported by the Ministry of Culture of Russia, which allocated a state subsidy of 50 million rubles for the film. (total budget of the film - 250 million rubles). A strange situation - both the president and the government oppose the falsification of national history, and the Ministry of Culture spends public money on this grand fake.

The superficiality of the actors is that they completely lack an understanding of the fact that they participate in low-quality crafts.

            Yes, yes, the color of the gaps on the epaulettes and artificially made bomb guns are not quite right - this is very important for understanding the very idea that the authors laid down in this film.
            Guided by this logic, it is necessary to subject works such as "Hot Snow" to obstruction - what right did Zhzhonov and Eremenko have to play in this fake with BMP camouflaged plywood ?!
            In other words, the film "Battalion" is not about buttons and the ability of actresses to wear military uniforms - for some reason it seems that the young ladies of that time did not do it better.
            It is about real events - meanness, corruption, self-sacrifice. About the female soul, after all. And if people think after watching and, as they say, cry, the movie is right.

        And it seems to me that this is not the "illegibility and superficiality of the authors", but an absolutely conscious formation of a distorted memory of history. Look, recently everything that relates to tsarist Russia has been presented as the highest, noble and wonderful time for the people, therefore, about the White Guards, it is only pleasant and sublime. But all sorts of troublemakers, Bolsheviks, Reds and communists, if not a fiend, then low and criminal personalities, driven by base or criminal instincts. And if in the days of the USSR we were told about the crimes of the tsarist regime and the Belguards, then now about the crimes of the people, the Reds and the communists. The same "Sunstroke" Mikhalkov - he does not say that exactly the same barges as with the whites, but only with the reds and their sympathizers, were sunk by the noble Kolchaks and Barrels. It should be understood that the main idea is again becoming "pseudo-people", one-man command and Orthodoxy, and all sorts of revolutions have repeatedly been demanded by the apologists of modern power to be BAN! And you want objectivity. We have the period of Nicholas I with his "freezing" of life in Russia. As if about Putin, Klyuchevsky wrote about Nicholas I: “Nicholas set himself the task of not changing anything, not introducing anything new in the foundations, but only maintaining the existing order, filling in the gaps, mending the dilapidated ones with the help of practical legislation and doing all this without any participation of society , even with the suppression of public independence, by government means alone; but he did not remove from the queue those burning questions that were raised in the previous reign, and, it seems, understood their burning even more than his predecessor.

      How do you put it, "Bochkarevskie ladies" have to the "First Petrograd" battalion, deployed on the basis of the Kexholm regiment? Who defended the Winter Palace?
      And these, as you casually put it, "Bochkarevskie ladies" - participants in real hostilities at the front. On July 8, 1917, they actually entered the battle, in three days the regiment, which included Bochkareva's team, repulsed 14 attacks by German troops.
      Several times the battalion rose in a counterattack and knocked out the Germans from the Russian positions occupied on the eve. 30 killed, 70 wounded.
      The film is essentially just about this episode. Well, where is the falsification you found here?

    Women's battalions are a golem PR project, as it would be called today. Then it was called military propaganda. The task of Maria Bochkareva was simple - to play a performance for the press. Paphos was understandable: to shame the appearance of men who do not want to fight. How successful was this propaganda operation? Contemporaries rated it as a failure, so the military refused to continue the project a month and a half after the approval of the provision "On the formation of military units from women volunteers." The "producer" of the project was Rodzianko, who brought Bochkarev to the capital, Kerensky liked the idea and was approved by Commander-in-Chief Brusilov. The initiative aroused great enthusiasm in society, and on the euphoric wave about 2000 volunteers enrolled in the “suicide bomber”: noblewoman, student, teacher, and worker; both girls from the famous noble families of Russia and ordinary peasant women and servants got into operation. Adjutant Bochkareva was Maria Skrydlova, daughter of Admiral Skrydlov. Within a month they took the “young fighter's course”, and during this time the number of volunteers decreased to 300. Most, having sniffed the service, fled. And Bochkareva herself arranged a regime of tough hazing. According to General Polovtsev, she "beats the muzzle, like a real leader of the old regime." In the film, this moment is highlighted, albeit briefly. Some of the volunteers refused to obey Bochkareva and did not go to the front with her. These ladies became famous thanks to the episode with the protection of the winter palace on the day of the Bolshevik coup.

      Kamrad STATE COUPLING - a sudden illegitimate change of government undertaken by an organized group to remove or replace legitimate authority.
      The fundamental difference between a coup and a revolution consists in the fact that the latter is committed as a result of protest actions (and in the interests of) a significant group of people, which make up a significant part of the country's population and to a radical change in political regime .

      If on the fingers, then in October 1917 there was a revolution and the socialist system was replaced by the capitalist system, but in Kiev at the beginning of this year a revolution took place --- the political, social and economic system remained the same, and the group of people in power changed. hi

        While agreeing with you on all the previous posts, here I will allow myself to disagree. The Bolsheviks themselves called this event a coup, since there was no significant group of people (hence the split of the country into several warring camps, and the overwhelming majority of the population simply did not know about this coup). Lenin and Trotsky just chose the right moment and took power into their own hands, using minimal forces. It was only later that the "triumphal march of Soviet power" began, abundantly watered with the blood of the citizens of the Russian Empire.

    No "Bochkareva battalion" NEVER EXISED. If it existed, it would have a serial number, staff structure, commander, headquarters, chancellery, there would be an order to create a new military unit, a banner, etc. Try to answer the basic question: who was the battalion commander? Bochkareva? It’s even funny to talk about this, who will entrust the command of the Untersche battalion, not only not having a military education, but simply an UNLIMITED village woman. What was the purpose of the companies and platoons, their weapons, who commanded them?
    In Duroopedia they do not write about this. Indeed, the 1st Perograd Women's Death Battalion under the command of Staff Captain Loskov was formed, but only by the fall of the 17th year, and Bochkarev, in general, had nothing to do except the initial agitation stage. On June 21, the Bochkarevs were not given any combat banner. Presenting the battle banner is a ceremonial military ritual, and Bochkarev’s “death team” has been handed ... you will laugh - a white church banner.
    Now let's think about whether it was possible to create an attack battalion in a month at all? Assault battalions (death battalions) are grenadier (assault) units designed to overcome enemy defensive lines. Shock battalions were formed from volunteer FRONTIERS, from experienced soldiers, and not cannon fodder. Even during World War II, female infantry units did NOT EXIST, although there were hundreds of thousands of women in the army. Purely female were mainly auxiliary units and subunits - air defense, signalmen, airfield service staff, etc. Even under "bloody Stalinism" they did not try to send women to the trenches, and even under the old regime the generals could not even allow such a thought. Well, and how do you imagine the preparation of the assault battalion from the muslin institutes FOR THE MONTH? Yes, these wench women first time in my life! Shooting, bayonet throwing, grenade throwing, sapper and medical practice, tactics, communications, studying charters, combat training, chemical defense, field exercises - even for men this process takes several months. I'm not talking about participating in the maneuvers and combat coordination of the unit.
    So what did Bochkareva do? Only one - worked for the public. A whole horde of reporters, including foreign ones, was attached to her, to whom she gave out pathetic interviews in the spirit of "We will all die for our Motherland, let the men be ashamed." To work with the foreign press and officers from allied missions, an aristocrat was attached to the dull and uncouth Bochkareva - Countess Skrydlov, Princess Tatuyev and a certain Ivanov. Another battalion had to prepare several dozen extras to participate in street demonstrations and photo shoots.

      By the way, it was after being wounded in this battle that Bochkareva said: “Don't take more women to the front, because I am disappointed in women,” and the battalion itself disbanded. hi

    A feature film differs from a documentary in that it contains fiction, but we are talking about a deliberate falsification of our history, when the feat of Rimma Mikhailovna Ivanova at the front was attributed to an unnamed nurse in the fight against the Bolsheviks, like the entire film "Admiral" this is an outright lie and an attempt vilification of our ancestors.

    Further, about the criminal, you took it from what sources !?


    What sources did you get the information from? The source you mentioned telling the biography of Bochkareva is based on the book "Yashka", written by Isaac Don Levin, who reworked Bochkareva's stories about her life.
    In this biography, a lot of moments are omitted, for example -
    - that Bochkareva knew and at least covered the gangster activity of her husband Buka in Tomsk;
    - that Bochkareva, together with Buk, opened a butcher shop in Yakutsk as a cover for gang activity;
    - that 2 000 candidates didn’t pass from 1 700 because of the strict selection, but because in particular Bochkareva beat the candidates, which were reported to the higher authorities and there were many, but since Bochkareva secured the support of Kerensky’s wife and according to Kerensky himself, the reports went under the cloth.

    Well, you can still believe Bochkareva - especially how the governor of Yakutsk Kraft I.I. (an outstanding person who has done a lot for the development of Siberia). Residents of Yakutsk I think they can tell me better about Kraft’s activity, but if you think that he desired this, I wash my hands. request

    If you have a more truthful and more accurate biography then I’ll ask for a link to the studio, just for God's sake I don’t need to give a link to the story from the Bolsheviks. the Bolsheviks were masters of writing something that didn’t exist at all, or transferred everything from the advantageous side for themselves.

      No need to do self-justification.
      You were given a link where there is absolutely no look, the winners, as you write, the result is the same.
      If you are a fan of the delights of Svanidze, Mlechin and other tantrums from history, stay in amazement further.

        Where did you see the excuse on my part ?.
        You are no one to me and there is no way to call you so that I can justify myself before you.
        I watch you have a direct telepath at a distance whether you know what I like or not, I will disappoint you, I don’t know who they are (Svanidze and Mlechin), much less read their works, so you can not put them to me as an example.

    The society that made a woman pick up a weapon is very painful and flawed. All world history shows that the treatment for such a disease is always one. Very cruel, but fair. Right - a bullet in the forehead, and the guilty - a rope around the neck.

      To the point.
      an attempt to replace in the minds of the people, the heroes of the Great Patriotic War, with the heroes of the IMPERIALIST, which other talkers from history, having forgotten that they had already called the war of 1812, they are trying to call it 1 Patriotic ..
      Their hero, White and others, let’s say the liberals, are needed, but all the heroes look frankly bad and look like they’re either in the blood of a man’s neck or with a criminal spirit ..

    But I cannot but agree. Yes, I saw the film. It hurt that if the state has brought itself to such an extent that forgive the expression "women" went to bayonet - a penny the price of this army. I, my own grandmother Maria Nikolaeva, fought and died from wounds received during, but after the war, I don't even remember her. Grandfather Nikolayev Nikolai Nikolaevich - captain, front-line soldier, he himself buried him in Ivanovo. Father-Nikolaev Alexander Nikolaevich -
    major of the Soviet army ... Mama Nikolaeva Angelina Ivanovna- worked at the regiment headquarters ...
    What am I doing. This is not a feminine affair, but when the Motherland calls, this is a sacred affair!

      With all due respect - but you yourself contradict yourself - either worthless or a holy cause.
      At 14 m or 41 m - the Motherland cannot call in different ways.

        I agree with you Alex! I could not formulate the idea more precisely. Then he reproached himself for what was said. We fought at 14 and 41 for the fatherland! But still, this is not a female matter. And thanks for criticism. Sorry, was a little yesterday drinks an impression! Yours faithfully! hi

      if you carefully watched the movie and listened, the women's battalion was not originally planned to be sent to the front line.
      The battalion was created to propagate the decomposed Russian army.
      But, in general, I believe that the German stepped on his boot and crushed the Russian.
      This is a momentous moment, as if they would come to Russian soil.
      In the next war (1941-45) they already burned everyone in the furnaces.

    "In short, the film is absolutely, much more than one might expect after watching the trailer. The director is a stupid person and a shameful hack. By the way, does the name of the director Meskhiev tell you anything? For what merits did he get the right to cut the $ 7,5 million allocated" on the rise of patriotism among the masses? "As a director, I know him only from the military film" Svoi "11 years ago. I vaguely remember the movie, except that it is anti-Soviet shit, for which the picture received its well-deserved awards at all film festivals. Well, the trend then was to smear the scoop, so Dimon distinguished himself. " Here is an opinion from the specified site. There is still a lot to read.
