Charles Bronson is easily one of the most manly men who ever graced the silver screen. People talk about Chuck Norris, but the real heads know that it’s Charles Bronson who sits at the head of the tough guy table.

As tough as he was, Bronson was also a total sweetheart. After he married English bombshell Jill Ireland he made sure that she was at his side on as many of his films as possible. After the duo started having kids he continued bringing his family everywhere with him, often piling them in an RV and driving to the film location.

While Bronson wasn’t a man of many words, he clearly loved Ireland which is something that feels so refreshing in this day and age. Sadly, Ireland passed away from breast cancer in 1990 at the home she and Bronson shared in Malibu.

During World War II, Russia was one of the few countries who actually had women going into battle and carrying out some of the more dangerous missions. These young women specifically targeted the Nazis and they didn’t let anyone get in their way.

Over 2,000 women were trained as sharpshooters by the Soviet Army, and they were all sent into some of the most dangerous parts of Europe to help take out the Germans.

Following the war, sharpshooter Lyudmila “Lady Death” Pavlichenko said of her job, “We mowed down Hitlerites like ripe grain.” Pavlichenko was pulled from field duty after a blast of shrapnel hit her in the face, but in a single year of service she took out 309 German soldiers, including 36 enemy snipers.
