Stalingrad, 1942. The sniper's mission: Aim. Shoot. Kill. But this sniper is no ordinary marksman.Offers the story of legendary sniper Vasily Zaitsev, a member of the Stalingrad snipers of World War II, through a review of the dangerous work she did, the risky assignments she was given, and the personal motivation that made her succeed in her missions. Original.
Annotation:
Based on the remarkable story of Tania Chernova, a sniper during the Battle of Stalingrad in World War II, this compelling young adult novel follows a teenage girl as she endures sniper training and learns to kill despite her moral hesitation. The snipers help change history, dramatically affecting the war. With careful prose, excellent historical background, and a compelling story, this is powerful historical fiction.
