9. Czech Republic Army
For years, Czechoslovakian military regulations did not allow women in the military and it was after WWII that the enlistment of women into military service was permitted. Czech women fought during WWII with distinction as medical personnel, phone operators, and anti-aircraft gun crews. They served in the Czechoslovakian unit in the Soviet Union, in the British Women Auxiliary Air Forces in the United Kingdom and the British Army in the Middle East.
