Yea, I read about this woman before. She could teach us all a lesson about courage for sure.

 

Hats down to all fallen soldiers in ww2, friend or foe.

 

Maybe one day I catch enough time to write about my family medals and stories behind them.

 Mariya Vasilyevna Oktyabrskaya was born into a peasant family on the Crimean Peninsula  which is under International Law, part of an Independent and FREE Ukraine (but is at present under the forceful control of the Russian Federation).

Wiki often needs correcting

On topic - you can see the name of her tank "Боевая подруга" (fighting girlfriend) as one of the inscriptions for the soviet tanks in game.
