Soviet G.I Jane

Post by Oleg Grigoryev » 29 Oct 2002 08:18

Image Albina Gantimurova - during the war commanded recon detachment of Soviet Marines (Baltic Fleet ) . She had to fight her first German in hand to hand combat -manage to brake his both legs and had to carry him over to Soviet lines on her back. This Soldier since he did not know what was going happen to him passed to her his picture and picture of his fiancé asking that Albina if she could would tell her that he remained loyal. – she did not find the girl but she kept the picture till this day Image Image. It seems that she is rather sentimental.
