After the Germans killed her husband, Mariya wanted revenge for his death and for the death of the Soviet people. For this purpose she deposited all her personal savings – 50,000 rubles – to the National Bank in order to build a tank. She named that tank ‘Fighting Girlfriend’ and went to the frontline as the driver of said tank.”
And so Mariya went to war in her own tank with grim determination. After her first battle she wrote a letter to her sister where she told her “I’ve had my baptism by fire. I beat the bastards. Sometimes I’m so angry I can’t even breathe.”

Nancy Wake was a hard-drinking, hard-fighting WWII special agent, saboteur, and Maquis commander who survived four days of Gestapo interrogation, saved over two hundred downed Allied pilots from falling into the clutches of the Nazis, blew up a couple German supply depots, had a bounty of five million Francs placed on her head, and then killed an SS soldier with her bare hands.
She was the Allies’ most decorated servicewoman of WWII, and the Gestapo’s most-wanted person. They code-named her ‘The White Mouse’ because of her ability to elude capture.
