Roza Shanina was a student and a kindergarten teacher in Arkhangelsk, who enlisted as a volunteer. She graduated from sniper school with excellence and participated in battles from April of 1944. For her valour and great results she was awarded the Order of Glory 3rd class after just two weeks of fighting: she became the first servicewoman of the 3rd Belorussian Front to receive it. She participated in battles under Vitebsk and Vilnius, and in early September of 1944 hunted down German snipers on the East Prussia border. By that time her kill count was over 50, and on September 16th, 1944 she was awarded the Order of Glory 2nd class.

From September 27th through to the 29th of 1981 the Iranian armed forces executed Operation Samen-ol-A'emeh ("The Eighth Imam'') aiming to lift the siege of Abadan. A diversion made the Iraqi believe that the enemy was marching on Basra, then the Iranian air force utilised its air superiority to strike the Iraqi ground troops, and finally the Iranian army led an attack from three sides. The losses were mostly equal, but the Iraqi forces left behind hundreds of trophy vehicles as they retreated.
