It is a well-known fact that the Soviet Red Army used women in the role of snipers during WWII and that some of them achieved an incredible rate of confirmed kills. This is the absorbing personal story of one of those brave women, Lyudmila Pavlichenko, whose tally of confirmed kills was over 300. This translation of her account as a sniper is to read a personal story, which comes as close to a conversation as possible. From training to going into combat for the first time, every step of this lady’s wartime experience is fascinating. The lessons she learnt in the art of shooting, from bullet trajectory to judging range, are all conveyed here and will more than satisfy the interests of those enthusiasts of military sniping. Her explanation of preparing for a mission fills in many gaps missing from books written by authors with no combat experience in the role of sniping.
