An excerpt from the story of "selling" Nicholas Berg.

These super-women

- Our children are watching American films about the heroic Americans, but in fact these Americans in reality did not exist. Some myths. We heroic girls and women have been thousands, and movies are not filmed.

- Come on, take off. For example 'The Dawns Here Are Quiet ... ", or here still remember the' House on the seven winds'. About trooper-girl Durova - 'Hussar Ballad'.

- Well, thirty that over the past years? - stomps me question the museum profession.

- And you would be if I were a writer - that would be written? To the movie filmed?

- Yeah, anything can not 'Resident Evil - 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on! - slowly begins to boil usually quietest museum worker.

- be fantasy is not enough? - sympathetically podnachivat Raccoon.

- Then my imagination is not necessary! We have so happened that no hack does not come up! Yes, I even can not say right away - for someone to take! I'm telling you - thousands of heroin.

- But let's at least three. And so spectacular episodes.

- a piece of cake. Bend your fingers!

- Bends!

- Nina Pavlovna Petrova. Holders of the Order of Glory. Leningradka, athlete ...

- Komsomolskaya Pravda, beauty - picks policeman.

- What do you mean! She was 48 years old when she arrived in Kuibyshev recruitment. Of course it turned, the more she wanted to be a sniper. Nina Pavlovna came in Kuibyshev Military Commissariat of Leningrad at the beginning of the war.

- I'm an athlete, shoot better than any soldier.

- you 48 years, we have no right to call a woman of that age rebuffed her voenkomatovskie.

- The right to defend the homeland is everyone! - wrote Nina Pavlovna Chief Military Commissioner, and made his own. But in front of her did not let the shooter trainer raised snipers, teaching them all sorts of tricks - all during the war - 512 snipers prepared, yes three hundred soldiers dragged up 'Voroshilov shooters' up front made only already in 1943 - and quickly distinguished - in a street battle near Tartu saw a couple of Germans with canisters that gently somewhere Purley carefully followed them and just shoot accurately. When it became clear that they want to set fire on a house. It turned out - thrown headquarters Jaeger Regiment, with all maps, documents and typewriters. This is not rolled swing - beat the two rangers, not the children by the way, is not a simple infantry. In Poland, a soldier received a second Order of Glory. We had to knock off the Germans from the high-rise and high-rise on the three machine guns, competent calculations for them - let a close and laid on the ground - so do not get another grenade and artillery pomoshnitsa its not - by its slapped too. And all the artillery at our zalegshih was an elderly woman with a rifle. Nina P. coolly with a few hundred meters brains beat out anyone who stood up for mashinengever. Such brave that rattled the spattered blood kamaradov gun plucked a dozen and each received from Petrova bullet - in the eyes, forehead and face. When she shot guns our calculations Hans dropped from the position. As such a duel? One woman - a dozen gunners at three stankachah? Inspires? And in Germany, brought a personal account to 122 enemies. And this is not the mythical figures, each documented, not that of the German and Finnish characters that worked without consideration, and the numbers mad nothing confirmed. - quite transcripts, even for a computer game is not something that the cinema. She died?

- Killed - Pavel grustneet - May 2, 1945 it hauled mortar and fool-driver drunk is likely to fall into the ravine. People and body covered.

- I hate drunk drivers - rather angrily expressed thug policeman.

- Continue! Mariya Bayda, medical instructor. The hero of the USSR. Here it is - the Komsomol and beauty, Nurses. Defense of Sevastopol. Apart from being pulled from the battlefield about a hundred injured - with a weapon on that account to pay special, and not just pulled. And still bandaged and cheered that in a context where the death of hundreds of close fly, explode and yell nearby in a foreign language, even for the man - not an easy task, so it is still in the implementation of its work of heavy stuffed no less than twenty-Nazis. Girl of twenty. Four Krauts - melee. And without snot, hand-wringing, and thinking about sushnosti all things. Because after what I saw during the shelling and bombing of the city for the people of the Nazis is no longer held. Subman this had to be stopped. So she tried.

- Something like somehow very densely - doubts policeman.

- Nothing special thick - she was the German machine, so the Germans do not just focusing on the wrong sound and considering that shoots near his own. And it was Mary, they did not own. Even contrived privolakivat captured weapons and ammunition from the Germans did not forget to shoot. And some of our prisoners freed when they drove the Germans in captivity, she guards and primogilila. Then he was captured - badly injured with a broken leg, he survived the concentration camps and when I got to work to Bauer, it just does not fork pinned for rudeness. Miraculously survived, perhaps because the resistance has been associated with that time. It is true because of the same and the Gestapo landed, head turned countryman, born in Ukraine, and because an acquaintance began with the fact that knocked the young woman half teeth. They kept her in the cellar, where the floor was filled with ice water, and was questioned, putting the fire so that the scorching - well it is necessary to dry the basement after a ... - Killed?

- No, I survived. And she got married and gave birth to a child and became a deputy and honorary citizen of the city of Sevastopol. Good? Especially in terms of staging scenes of skirmishes and tactical tricks?

- Yes, good. And the third?

- It's not a problem. Alexander Avraamovna Derevskoy.

- GSS or holder of Fame?

- Neither one nor the other. But any Mila Jovovich or where Angelina Jolie can only stand at attention. When brought in Stavropol train evacuated from Leningrad orphans, kids will not be able to, ditrofiki. Citizens disassembled children's home, seventeen remained the weakest, they do not want to take - something there to take it, still do not come out, only to bury ... All of them took himself Alexander Avraamovna Derevskoy. And then he continued. He took the brothers and sisters of those that were with her. Her children later recalled: "One morning we saw that at the gate are four boys, less - not more than two ... you ... we Derevskoy, aunt heard that you are the children going to ... we have no one .. . folder died, mother died ... And all our family has grown, so too was the man my mother, if they learned that somewhere there is a lone sick child, it did not calm down until I bring home. In late 1944, she learned that the hospital is emaciated boy of six, is unlikely to survive. His father died at the front, his mother died of a heart attack, received a death notice. Mother brought the baby - blue, thin, wrinkled ... At home he immediately put in a warm oven to warm ... Over time, Victor turned into a thick toddler who would not let her mother's skirt for a minute. We called it a ponytail ... '

By the end of the war, Alexandra Avraamovna had 26 sons and 16 daughters. After the war, the family moved to the Ukrainian town of Romny, where they had allocated a large house and several acres of garden. On the tombstone the mother-heroine Alexandra Avraamovna Derevskoy - a simple inscription: 'You are our conscience, Mother' ... And forty-two signatures ... Impressive? - Yes, much - after a while we agree.

- And I would have, and continue, among other things. And about the girls of the death squads and pro medsestrichek World. And about nine warriors of the civil war - on both sides and. And about Finnish. Well, about the Great Patriotic War - snipers one year is not enough time to remember. Each army was' maiden company. " It can be used to talk about Alie Moldagulova, Tatiana Kostyrin, Natasha Screener, Masha Polivanova, Baramzina Tatyana, Lyudmila Pavlichenko or Rose Shanina. And the girls - pilots. Those 'Night Witches' during the war with his corncob hundred tons of bombs managed to lose. A regiment Grizodubova! A Tank Girl? Masha Logunov, which is the same as with Maresyev happened. October or who have passed the money on your tank 'Fighting girlfriend'? A signaller? Sappers? Underground fighter? Not talking about those who worked, a separate song. But then the word - even in Afghanistan, our girls showed themselves. For example, when our sworn friends were able to arrange a biological sabotage was cholera in Jalalabad, struck DSHB. Tajikistan is also our dechonkam had a sip.
