Each author supplies full details of their chosen sniper, including illustrations which have never been published before, to construct a complete and varied picture of sniper warfare. The biographies of these exceptional soldiers include remarkable first-hand accounts of wartime service which provide a graphic insight into a sniper s lethal skill and vividly illustrate the backdrop of the war. These gripping narratives will be fascinating reading for any one who is keen to learn about the role and technique of the sniper during the Second World War and go beyond the cursory treatment in existing histories. The contributors include Charles Henderson writing on the myth of Major Koenig, Mark Spicer on Harry Furness, Martin Pegler on Vassili Zaitsev, Charles Strasser on Pavlichenko, Adrian Gilbert on Sepp Allerberger, Leroy Thompson on Captain C Shore, Dan Mills on Private Delvin and Roger Moorhhouse on Simo Haya. Nigel Jones will also contribute.
