Such good information about the snipers of the World War 2. I had no idea that women were recruited as snipers at that time. These were young women and men that had shown skill with the rifle. This book covers the Soviet, Finnish and German snipers.
There were Japanese snipers that had a totally different style. I was surprised to find that America did not have a dedicated sniper training program during that time.
There are many books on the subject of World War 1 and World War 2 that I plan on reading next. Great job from the author in compiling such detailed information.
It is wonderful to see the stories of heroes that you had no idea about their stories.
One of the most amazing stories was about Daniel Inuoye. I knew him when he was a senator, but I did not have a clue about him before then. What a great book of amazing people.
This is another one of the short books by Ryan Jenkins that everyone should read.
Interesting and informative
I really learned so much about two different types of men. One a man that wanted to be the best during the worst of times. A man that has to think about the dangers to his wife and his self. Really a fascinating read on a good man.
The other man was not a kind man. He was driven and could be hard. He made decisions that showed his intelligence but also showed his coldness. Such details in the experiences that he faced really brought the war clearer to my mind. Great reading.
This book about the bravery in the American home front really put the light on the people here in the states that struggled and suffered through the war years.
It explained about the workers and the farmers that were reeling from the depression then were involved in the war effort.
It was a good book to see what was going on at home during the war.
