The commitment of Soviet women in World War II, by their number and their role is an unprecedented event in the history of the world.

More than 100,000 of them will engage in the regular army or join the partisans. Of all the trades that women could do in the war, one of the toughest, most unlikely, is the sniper.

Here is the incredible destiny of those who before the war were teachers or students, and the will to defend their country and avenge their family will become snipers.
