During the First World War, women were mobilized on an unprecedented scale. Some of them, mainly Russian, wouldnít be satisfied working in the rear and would eventually enroll in the army. Maria Bochkareva stood out among all of them. She was born to a poor peasant family and fought in the frontline from the very beginning of the war. She was wounded in several occasions, formed the so-called Ďwomenís battalions of deathí, got the highest honors and became a worldwide famous charismatic leader. She was executed by the Bolsheviks when she was just 30 years old.

From misfortune to legend

Women's Battalion of Death

An all-female combat unit formed in 1917 after the February Revolution in Russia. First deployed in the calamitous June offensive, the battalion was last used to help guard the Winter Palace on the night of the Bolshevik takeover, and its women were among the last defenders of the Provisional Government.

Enfants de la Patrie

The battalion was founded by Maria Bochkareva, a peasant woman who had escaped a violent husband and managed to enlist in the Russian army in her own right. She recruited women between the ages of 18 and 35 at a series of public meetings during the early summer, and by the time of their first parade in barracks on May 26, around 2,000 had enrolled. A few other battalions, not connected to her, were formed during the summer.
