Reeking of sulfur and swept by bombs, bullets and shellfire, the beach was bloody of the 26,000 dead soldiers.  For the Corp, the Battle of Iwo Jima was the definitive battle in the Pacific. It was the bloodiest battle in history for the Corp. This high cost yielded more than 1/4 of the WWII Medals of Honor awarded by shari

In Soviet Union women participating in WWII were erased from history, remaining as the occasional anecdote of a female sniper or simply as medical staff or, at best, radio specialists. The word “front-line girl” (frontovichka) became a terrible insult, synonimous to “whore”. Hundreds thousand of girls who went to war to protect their homeland with their very lives, who came back injured or disabled, with medals for valor, had to hide it to protect themselves from public scorn. by proteamundi
