When the Germans invaded the Soviet Union, Ivan Boiko and his pretty wife, Alexandra, were working in the Siberian town of Magadan, far from the front.

They worked a lot — accumulating a ton of overtime pay, and eventually joined Mariya Oktyabrskaya in the “get permission from Stalin to buy your own tank and fight Nazis” club, which was apparently less exclusive than you’d think.
