Sniper Ace: From the Eastern Front to Siberia
It records more than kills, placing him as one of the war’s most successful snipers. A large part of his journal is reproduced for the first time here. A month later he was sent on a five month sniper’s course in Wilna, after which he was posted to the Eastern Front. Despite his age, he was regarded as one of Germany’s best snipers and in November he was awarded the Scharfshutzenabzeichen 3 Stufe – the highest award for a sniper. During this time he met a Red Cross nurse, to whom he gave all his journal.
He deserted to join the Lithuanian resistance fighters.
After being captured again he was tortured by the KGB and deported to Siberia to endure forced labor. It was not until the collapse of the Soviet Union that he was able return to Germany and find his journal, still in the hands of the same nurse. Introduction written by David L.

For many years the skill and the bravery of the Wehrmacht sniper has gone unrecorded. With this book we see inside his experiences for the first time and it is a read that I would strongly recommend to any current sniper. A truly fascinating look at the trials and tribulations of one mans war when the world was at war around him. Mark Spicer, author of the Illustrated Manual of Sniper Skillsreturncharacterreturncharacter”It’s extremely rare to find a first-hand account by one of Germany’s most accomplished World War II snipers but rarer yet, this memoir incorporates his actual wartime shooting logbook, documenting kills.

Bruno Sutkus – Wikipedia
Interesting to hear the author recount his experience. He does so fairly matter-of-factly with no braggadocio. His experience in Soviet Russia after the war was very sad as he recounts the abuses he lived with and the sacrifices he made. Interesting that he was able to work hard and actually at times be better off than those around him because of it.
Not supposed to happen in a communist society but one re The author was able to make quite a few sniper kills in a few months on the Russian front.
Not supposed to happen in a communist society but one reaps what one sows. Not as engaging as The Forgotten Soldier, which I recommend you read for a more detailed view of an infantryman’s view of what it was like on the front.
