She joined Red Army as a girl in 1941 after her village was taken by German landing force and worked as a nurse. But later she was commissioned because of injury and put in reserve regiment. Than some officers came to get volunteers to the front-lines they took her for a man. She decided to play with and soon became a platoon commander.

She retired in 1947 in rank of guards colonel. She and her marine platoon was so feared by Nazis that they called her Frau Schwarzer Tod (Miss Black death).

* In ''Literature/RoseDaughter'', a retelling of "Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast" by Creator/RobinMcKinley, Beauty's sister Lionheart disguises herself as a boy so she can get a job and help support her father and sisters. This confuses their new neighbors somewhat, who are ''quite sure'' that when the family moved in there were three daughters rather than two daughters and a son, but they shrug it off and go about their lives.

* ''Literature/QueenOfTheTearling'' has an unusual example; Kelsea swaps clothes with one of the male guards who accompany her. The loyal guards know that she is a woman, and the disguise is not meant to be very convincing, it is only to distract the enemies, who are looking for the Queen and are unlikely to get very close.

* Subverted in ''Manga/LudwigKakumei''. [[spoiler: When we receive a {{flashback}} of a princess being outcast and then flash forward to Petronella calling Julius "Julianna", this is where your mind goes, right? Unfortunately for you, Kaori Yuki doesn't think the way us (relatively speaking) sane people do. Turns out the young Princess Julianna was actually born a boy who grew up and developed into an [[{{Transsexual}} transwoman.]] Isn't that wacky?]]

* In ''My Father Had a Daughter,'' a fictionalized account of the life of Judith Creator/WilliamShakespeare, the heroine dresses as a man in order to sneak off to the Globe Theater and act in her father's plays. Works well until he figures out who she really is, but even he has to admit some amusement at the trick. The narrative implies that her ruse was his inspiration for ''Theatre/TwelfthNight'' (see the Theater section below).
