Alot of action coverage can be found in the last 10 Newswheels "Deutsche Wochenschau". For example they show there a Luftwaffehelferin Erna Hirsekorn who formed a Kampfgruppe with a dozen of HJ-Boys to save a Odera-Bridge.
I joined the site to see that and other films but I think there is something missing from my PC as their films refuse to run on my system
Can anyone email me a Mpeg file of that newsreel in question?
RedBarDragon - there are photos, and of course the original question was also answered partly above even if you dont think so. Some have been posted on this forum so have a browse in the search facility. I have books with photos of women holding Panzerfausts sitting in foxholes (in Berlin) for instance and I also have a copy of the letter from the Reichschancellry addressed to a huge list of people giving permission and orders that women should be armed and trained. But all this is late war of course.
I shall try and dig out my copy of an academic research paper of recorded instances. I have details of a Flakhelferin who won an Iron Cross for knocking out a Russian armoured vehicle with her Panzerfaust and then recovering important Russian documents.
Edit: I saw this posted on another thread by Drew Maynard (BDM will know which one) which I think is interesting for this thread too. Note that it was Maria's age
which prevented her from going to the frontline, not the fact she was female.
