In World War II, the Great Patriotic War the Soviet Union was the most brutal war in human history. To win this war, the people of the former Soviet Union paid an unprecedented extremely heavy cost. Lenin Communist Youth League of the Soviet Union issued a general mobilization to all the girls, calling them taking off "Blazy", put the Reds loaded with youth and their blood to defend the country. In a short period of time, a total of 800,000 female enlisted, where the vast majority of girls.

This was the most extensive in the history of mankind a female team, in addition to their work in the medical health and communications, but also responsible for a variety of the most dangerous tasks, such as snipers, machine gunners, scouts, tanks, soldiers and pilots and so on. Soviet female lives and blood went through and won the most brutal wars in human history. More than half of these young female soldiers died on the battlefield or the German fascist concentration camp. Say "war let women go away," but women are precisely the most tragic war in the history of mankind, the most tragic victim, we should not forget them.

Comments on the forums regarding this soon-to-be-released Very Cool Toys New Product: 1/6 scale Soviet Red Army Female Soldier 12" figure are: Ushanka looks a bit big and too modern. Also, the improper ammo pouch for the weapon and the shape of the sole and the tread pattern of the boots look way too modern as well.

Seems to be three different service branches here: medical, sentry and traffic control. Medics don't carry weapons or else they'll get shot at. Would have been nice if they had added a round PpsH pouch as well.

Aside from the few inaccuracies this actually looks pretty nice. Even the head sculpt shows promise. Not your typical Hollywood beauty (the nose is a little too long and sharp) but nice for the girl next door look.

Skirt is too short for the time period.
