Footage of Russian women's army battalion.
Russian women's battalion. Location of events unknown.
World War One; women. Russian Women become soldiers; some mean to avenge husbands;boyfriends and brothers killed 'Women's Death Battalion' training .. Opens with scene in the woods; male officers watch as women march in from left; and stand marching in place under the trees (looks like an aerobic exercise class; the way some of them are marching so energetically!); then continue off to right. Next; a shot of the Women's Battalion posing for picture; some stand in back; some sit on ground; informally. There are also about 8 men; reclining on ground in the middle front and goofing off. Some of the women are quite pretty even in these drab uniforms; some of them look very young. Interesting story; contradiction of sex-roles way back in the 1910s. Also ON 402R
