Happy Birthday!

Soviet Army lieutenant (ret. as Major) sniper,
Lyudmilla Pavlichencko

born 7/12/1916
(d10/27/1974)

She was cited in May 1942 for personally killing 257 German soldiers in the siege of Leningrad. She was credited over all with 309 kills. She later received a hero's welcome in New York and Washington and was the first Soviet citizen to visit the White House. The CIO presented her with a Colt automatic pistol - a warrior's gift. At home she received the Order of Lenin and title, Hero of the Soviet Union. After the war she worked as a historian and journalist.   [Per KJ Cottam, Women in War and Resistance, 1996]

        Miss Pavlachencko, well-known to fame
        Russia's your country, fighting's your game
        The world will always love you for all time to come
        Three hundred Nazis's felled by your guns

                "Miss Pavlachencko," WW Guthrie, c1942; tune: "Roll on the
                Ground." On That's Why We're Marching, Smith/Folkways
                CD. 1st issued on Folkways, Union Hootenanny, 1946.
                Notes by Guy Logsdon & Jeff Place.

I believe there's a Russian song about her too. Give me a day or so to check into it.
