Descriptions du produit

Stalingrad snipers were a legend in their time. Their patience, keen eyes and ruthlessness helped win the Battle of Stalingrad and turn the tide of the Second World War. This is the true story of a teenage sniper recruited in 1942 by Vasily Zaitsev to seek out and shoot German officers. To begin with, the youngster finds it almost impossible to kill, but after a shocking discovery, goes on to 'snap as many as 84 German sticks', and following capture and a daredevil escape, leads a handpicked unit on a hazardous mission - to seize Field Marshall Paulus, the Commander-in-Chief of the invading army. But this sniper is no ordinary marksman...The author first visited Stalingrad in 1959, and made subsequent visits in 1963 and, most recently, in 2006, when he met Tania Chernova, the heroine of this novel. Having studied Russian in Birmingham and Moscow, James Riordan lived, worked and travelled extensively in Russia for five years, and has presented several BBC radio programmes on Russia. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Russian at the University of Surrey.

exciting adventure 23 janvier 2012

This is a fine action adventure set during the Eastern conflict of WW2. It portrays the struggle of these brave people of Stalingrad---but also makes one aware of the extreme fortune we in America have had to not (as yet) live under a tyrant such as Stalin and his evil system. Shows the human side of Russian defenders; just wanting to survive. Highly recommended!

actually, a great read - all about vasily zaitzev from his pov. hard to put down. if you like sniper stories or events, this is a good one
A truly great read, but to me, only for those 13 and older. Realistic descriptions of the horrors of war. (Not too graphic) 31 octobre 2014

"The Sniper" by James Riordan is a "novelized" version of real life events in the World War 2 Battle of Stalingrad. Tania is the main character and is a teenage girl.

Life is pretty good at the start of the book for Tania. Then the Nazi invasion of Russia happens and everything changes. Tania witnesses a transition from being a pioneer (like Girl Scouts) to being a laborer who fills sand bags, to being an antiaircraft gunner, to being in the secret police, to being a soldier, and then trained as a sniper. And the events really did happen the way this book describes them. Be sure to read the 'Note on the Story' at the back of the book. There the author describes the people and events from the real life battle.

The book is well written and engaging. The characters are described vividly and realistically. The flow of the plot is steady.

There is much violence, but not overly graphically described. It was a horrendous and nightmarish battle, and those scenes are discussed.

A truly great read.

My only downside is saying that this book is appropriate for children. In my opinion, this book is for those 13 years and older. (but parental discretion is very subjective. It would be best for the parent to read this book first, and the decide if a person younger than 13 can handle it. Perhaps read it together parent with child?)
Easy read but not a lot of substance. 17 mars 2014

I certainly have read better sniper novels like the Grandfather's Tale: The Tale of a German Sniper by
Timothy Erenberger. That was a book I could not put down.
Great read 8 décembre 2013

Gotta love those tough Russian women. This story of the heroism, bravery, and tragedy of the women snipers of Stalingrad is inspiring. Though written for teens, it's a great read for fans of sniper warfare and those who never tire of tales of the Krauts having their asses handed to them by the subhuman Commies on the Volga.
