Abstract

This book chapter in the 2011 edited German volume Soldatinnen: Gewalt und Geschlecht im Krieg vom Mittelalter bis heute (Female Soldiers: Violence and Gender in War from the Middle Ages to the Present) discusses  female partisans involved in  the armed resistance in Yugoslavia  against the occupation by the German Wehrmacht between 1941 and 1945. Up to 100,000 women joined the Yugoslav liberation army during World War II; the proportion of women was around 15 percent. Several became armed fighters, others served as doctors, medics and nurses (up to 10,000). This was the largest number of women involved in armed resistance against Nazi Germany outside of the Red Army during World War II. The book chapter discusses the motives, experiences and perception of these women.
