Roza Yegorovna Shanina Senior Sgt in the 184 Rifle Division, She persisted on joining the army even though she was only 16. She took sniper classes and made her first sniper kill in 1944. 54 confirmed kills until she herself was KIA on January 28, 1945. If you look at the photo it appears she has an early model M91/30 sniper because of the brass bands on the hand guard.

Lieutenant Ludmilla Mykhailivna Pavlichenko was born in the Ukrainian town of Belaya Tserkov on July 12th, 1916. She moved to Kiev with her family at the age of fourteen. There she joined a shooting club and developed into a sharpshooter, while working as a grinder at the Kiev Arsenal factory. In June 1941, 24-year old Pavlichenko was in her fourth year of studying history at the Kiev University when Nazi Germany began its invasion of the Soviet Union. Pavlichenko was among the first round of volunteers at the recruiting office, where she requested to join the infantry and subsequently she was assigned to the Red Army’s 25th Rifle Division. Her total confirmed kills during World War II was an incredible 309 confirmed, 36 of which were enemy snipers!!

Notice the rifle, it's a short version of the M91/30 sniper. I know someone who actually owns one of these. I've been begging him to let me photograph it.

Maria Koshkina (Tkalich) 85 confirmed kills. She started her career as a medical instructor and later became a sniper. After she was wounded in the leg, she retired as a sniper and kept serving as a medical instructor and a scout. She never wore any of her medals and orders when she was home in a village in the Leningrad Region of Russia because “she had received them for killing people”. If you look at the photo she may have been a left handed shooter because of the way she is holding her Mosin Nagant.

I dated a girl for a while that looked just like Rosa. She was a sweetheart.

It is a terrible shame that so many youth had to give their lives because of a few bad men. I love WWII history but the pictures that show the soldiers make me sad because I know most of them died in some horrible ways. Planes being shot down, ships exploding or sinking. Or being cut down by an mg32. Such a waste of life.
