2.0 out of 5 stars The only reason I am giving it 2 stars is because of Mr Liddles terrible introduction he insists on writing to each chapter, 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a marvelous and interesting read. The personal accounts as told by those who were there on the day kept me wanting to read more.
The only reason I am giving it 2 stars is because of Mr Liddles terrible introduction he insists on writing to each chapter.
He has an awful style of composition.His sentences are intermnable and sometimes fill most of the page.
It sometimes took me ages to decipher what he was trying to say at times as by the time I got to the end of a sentence I had forgotten what the beginning was about.
He needs to learn when to put a full stop!
Anyway, apart from that a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book, 10 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this book. GMF is wonderfully non-pc and honest. After seeing his section leader killed in front of him he says to us, "I hated the japs then and I still do" and happily describes them as "Bow legged little apes" . A moving and very humorously written account of fighting an awful enemy in an awful place.
If you don't approve of this sort of honesty then hard luck. I'm sure he wouldn't care less.
Will definitely read it again one day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sniping in France, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this a very interesting book . Rather an old fashioned style of writing but still very readable. Lots of technical detail. The Author clearly enjoyed every moment of his time spent in France. He likens sniping to big game hunting , exept the prey shoot back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sniper on the eastern front, 24 Jan. 2014
This book is apparently the true story of Sepp Allerbergers career as a sniper on the Eastern front.
The general historical events are probaly accurate but his adventures are written in the style of a second rate novel.
It is extremely tiresome to read.
Wounds "spray blood like fountains". Peoples heads "Explode like over ripe watermelons". He is able to stop battalions of attacking Russions merely by waiting until they are within 1oo meters and then shooting the commander. Where apon they all run away and his regiment is saved.
Waste of time .
