The girls came from every corner of the Soviet Union. With their country on its knees, and millions of its men already dead, wounded, or in captivity, thousands of Soviet women were trained as snipers. Nothing could have prepared them for the brutality of their new existence. From diaries, letters, interviews with survivors, and unpublished material from Soviet military archives, Vinogradova has made an uforgettable record of their experiences: the rigorous training, the devastation and chaos of the Eastern Front, and those moments of happiness that allowed the women to forget, for a moment or two, their horrifying circumstances.
