Rare first-hand account by a ruthlessly efficient German sniper of life and death during the bitter conflict that followed the Nazi invasion of Russia. Josef 'Sepp' Allerberger was an Austrian conscript who qualified as a Wehrmacht machine-gunner and was drafter to the Southern sector of the Front in July 1942. After being wounded, he experimented successfully with a captured Russian sniper-rifle while convalescing and returned to his unit as his regiment's only sniper specialist. He became the second most successful German sniper and one of the very few private soldiers to be awarded the coveted Knights Cross. This harrowing and graphic memoir provides a vivid insight to the atrocious conditions and brutal cruelty of this campaign . . . no place for chivalry and few prisoners survived long after capture.
