    Twenty year old Yugoslav girl fighter credited with killing 20 Germans; she is standing before a portrait of her leader, Marshal Tito, while recovering in an Allied rest camp in Italy from wounds received battling with the Germans in Yugoslavia. Camps take many such partisans of both sexes and all ages; restored to health, they are trained by battle experts before returning to continue the fight for liberation in their native land. Of Marshal Tito's army of 200,000 nearly a quarter are women, all as fierce and fearless as the men. Not sure if this message was used for propaganda at the time.
