  • Russia WW2 Newspaper Articles Wanted

    Hi,

    Can someone please help? I am try to get some Historical data together about WW2 Russian Female Tank driver Call Mariya Oktyabrskaya.

    According to the information I have to date, she caused quite alot of interest and the State Committee of Defense was going to use her for publicity, so I'm assuming there must be some Newpaper articles about her?? Maybe even some photos?? There should hopefully be something around August or September 1943, and maybe something more in March 1944.

    I do not mind that the Articles will be in Russian, I can get them translated if the need arises. I would just like to know if this part was true, and if someone did write about her, if these articles hold any furthur information about her.

    I have tried to access the Russian libraries, however haven't had much luck, due to my lack of ability to read Russian

    If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Exact tracing of specific tank brigade (and selected tank) is not a trivial task.
    Of course it's only a problem
    a) Money
    b) Luck (as many archival records are still closed)
