How about some eastern Europe stuff that isn't mainstream such as the Red Army?
Numbers of Yugoslav Partisans ranged from 80,000 in 1941, through 300,000 in 1943, up to 650,000 in late 1944, and 800,000 in May 1945.
Yugoslavia was the only country in Eastern Europe beside Greece that did not fall under Soviet control, as it managed to liberate itself.
The first armed uprising against Axis occupied Europe was in Montenegro (then Yugoslavia) on 13th July, when more than 32,000 people took up arms against Italian occupation.
5000 dead, wounded and captured Italians in 2 weeks. Uprising was suppressed in August by new Italian troops hauled in from Albania.
There is a shitload of noteworthy events in WW2 nobody ever cared to address. We get Omaha beach and Stalingrad over and over again.
Why not change that?
As you seem keen on including women in combat, why not do it in an environment where it actually happened in considerable numbers instead of placing them on the western front where it was an oddity at best?
Women made up almost 10% of Yugoslav Partisans.
In some units such as 4th Proletarian Montenegrin Strike Brigade they made up about 15%. Not medics and logistics, but actual fighters.
100,000 women were a part of Yugoslav Partisans. 25,000 were killed and another 40,000 wounded.
