    According to the Washingto Post, around 1 million women fought in the Soviet army during World War II because too many men had been killed and prisoned in the war. Think about it. The Soviet Union lost around 27 million people during the war, including 8.7 million military and 19 million civilian deaths.

    "There were 800,000 women who served in the Soviet Armed Forces during the war, which is roughly 3 percent of total military personnel."
