The summary of the war's end as seen by Sutkus is simply that there were more of them than of us. He writes that normal front lines had one Ivan for every fifteen meters while the Germans had one soldier for every fifty to seventy-five meters. The second half of the book describes his life avoiding capture in his homeland of East Prussia which was now occupied by the Soviets.

Bruno Sutkus was one of the most successful German snipers on the Eastern Front, with 207 recorded kills to his name
Bruno Sutkus was one of the most successful German snipers on the Eastern Front, with 207 recorded kills to his name. This autobiography, party based on his sniper log, tells his story during and after the Second World War. At the end of the war Sutkus fell into Soviet hands, and after a short period of relative freedom in and around Lithuania was forced into exile in Siberia.
This is not a typical book written by an accomplished author but rather more like a summary of the authors own sniper log book during WWII. The first half of the book covers Bruno Sutkus’ fairly short but active combat time on the Eastern Front as a sniper. There is some information about the German Sniper school and other very interesting historical information about the German Sniper program during the war. It does read like a log book and actually has many log entries from his 209 confirmed kills including many photos of pages from his log book as well as letters and commendations.

this book was very good! it read very well and was like sitting with my grandfather on a sunday afternoon. the first part of the book was like most old vet stories. he didnt dwell on whys and how comes, but told what was going on and gave just enough to keep you going. the second half is where you really bond with. the details of his exile were moving and the treatment of the pow's and the natives was just horrable. the feeling of blind stupidity that the communist party people had was amazing. but i guess thats why that feel apart in the long run. this is a good book for any.
