WWII Russian Female Snipers

Lidiya Gudovantseva killed 76 german soldiers in world war two and won the Lenin Order Medal. She was 18 years old when she decided that she wanted to join the Great Patriotic War against Germany. She said, “We feared that we would not be able to shoot and kill someone.” She probably had the exact same concerns that every soldier in any war had, whether they will be able to kill when the time comes. She was deployed into the Russian Northwest Territories. She and her spotter, Sasha, killed their first German soon there after . “All I could do was feel sorry for him. What else could I do? He was a human being.”

    Referring to German soldiers as "fascist insects" made it easier for women snipers to kill them. On another note, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, the Sex Therapist, was trained as an Israeli sniper during the late 40s war.
