Abstract

About 2,000 female soldiers landed on the coast of Provence after August 15, 1944 as part of the First Army of General de Lattre de Tassigny. They were joined by Metropolitan volunteers from the French Forces of the Interior or the Red Cross. Of these, many of these ambulance women worked in frontline medical battalions, to evacuate the injured to first aid stations. According to traditional assignments by gender that reserve the battlefield for men, these women had, by all points of view, an unusual war experience, suffering alongside their brothers in arms, the physical and psychological suffering of the front line. Through the gender prism and recent approaches to the warrior phenomenon, it is necessary to render an account of this engagement, of the journey and experience of these women who, though unarmed, can be considered in many ways as combatants.
