Women's Battalions were all female
combat units formed after
the February Revolution by the
Russian Provisional Government
in a last-ditch effort to inspire the
mass of war-weary soldiers to
continue fighting in World War 1.
This is the story of the 1st Russian
Women’s Battalion of Death, formed as part of an ill conceived
propaganda ploy by the Russian Provisional
Government in late May of 1917.
