Default Sniper's Honor

Bob Lee Swagger, is back.
And even retired is still getting into trouble..
This time a reporter in Moscow starts it all with a simple question:
"What is a Mosin?"

(It's a Russian pre World War One bolt action rifle used from the Sino-Japanese war through World wars one and two and even found in Korea and Vietnam.)

The story of "Die Weisse Hexxen" German for The White Witch, a Russian Woman Sniper who was "disappeared" by Uncle Joe Stalin

Wow

Took me all night to finish the book, each time I was ready to trundle off to bed I'd turn a page and find myself saying, "just finish this chapter" and then another and another. Too many fascinating facts and fiction woven together over time from World War Two to Present, from Moscow, to the Ukraine, Tel Aviv and Idaho....
Well done book.

I have it in hard cover if you'd like to read it drop me a PM, it'll cost you lunch and I want it back, (shouldn't take Mel but a week to have his daughter read it to him)<rofl> for the next loan out.

Too late: dropped it off with RR, he promised to read it to McFly since it wasn't an audio book.
Lol

Yes, better yet the novel: 300 days the siege of Stalingrad.
It's why I couldn't put the darn book down
