  • Number of Soviet Women in WW2 Military

    Greetings,

    A quick question. How many Soviet Women served in the military during WW2?

    I know it was several million, but I can't find the total and breakdown by group, army, VVS, navy, and so on.

    If possible can you give me a source where I can find this info.

    Thanks for any help.

        Of the number of conscripted were sent: to PVO units 177 065, signal units 41 886, Air Force units 40 209, women formations and school 14 460, automobile units 18 785, cook courses 28 500, military sanitary units and establishments 41 224, Navy units 20 889, railroad units of the NKPS (Peoples Commissariat for Transport Communications) 7 000, to MPVO (local anti-aircraft defense units of the NKVD 70 458, miscellaneous (front, district and army) units and establishments of the Red Army 29 259.
        That doesn't include volunteer enlistment, as far I understand.

          Thanks Art,

          This is the info I was looking for. Only 490,235 women in total, I was thinking it was far more.

          Is Krivosheev the author of an article or paper?

          Thanks again,

              I do have his book "Soviet Casualties and Combat losses"

              I did find the reference about women serving on page 230,... 490,235 called up.

              So thanks for the breakdown of this total number.
