The toughest female soldier in World War II. 49

 

 

When Hitler heard that German born Marlene Dietrich was in Europe entertaining U.S. troops, he personally ordered her killed.

When U.S. Intelligence found out, they offered to ship her back stateside.

La Dietrich said “Nein” and demanded she be taken to the frontlines to perform closer to the troops.

The daughter of a Prussian officer was one tough cookie.

After the war, President Truman awarded her the Medal of Freedom in a White House ceremony.
