Lady Death: The Memoirs Of Stalin's Sniper
- Biographies & Memoirs, World War II
Stalin’s lady killer
When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in June, 1941, 24-year-old Lyudmila Pavlichenko left her university studies to become one of Russia’s 2,000 female snipers. With 309 recorded kills, she was among the war’s top-scoring snipers.
Translated from the original Russian and based on Pavlichenko’s own postwar notes and wartime diary, Lady Death follows her across the killing fields of the Eastern Front. She was withdrawn from active duty following an injury but went on to train other snipers, and after the war, she spoke at rallies in Canada and the U.S., took a tour of the White House with FDR, and even became the subject of the Woodie Guthrie song “Killed by a Gun.”
Lady Death stands among the most riveting sniper memoirs of all time.
