Children who had fought in the World War II

During the Second World War, many children were fighting in the regular army against the Nazis. Many children tried to flee from their homes by war, but most of them were seized by military police and returned to their homes.

Often, the soldiers found the children in impoverished villages. Poor children were placed in, a specially created during the war, children’s homes, but sometimes the boys involved in active combat units, where they received weapons and a special form. 

Some of the boys fell into the army at age 9 – 11 years, and remained with his regiment on all fronts, from Russia to Germany, before the end of the war. Many of them died during the war, but also most of them returned home with medals of honor.
