The Russian All-Female ‘Battalion Of Death!’ – And What Historical Impact Did They Have?
World War I and the Ever Sinking Morale Of The Male Russian Soldier saw a new incentive to raise morale of the sunken-heart and even ‘shame’ many male ‘potential’ soldiers into joining the fight!
A Battalion Of Female Soldiers were banded together to create new inspiration for ‘Mother Country’. This group of women would be known as ‘The Battalion Of Death’. Although many women were already trying to sign up and fight in an official capacity, until now mainly refused/ignored. The government of this time latched onto this notion and reasoned this would be perfect for raising enthusiasm in the low morale of the Russian (Male) Soldier.
