Senior Sergeant Roza Shanina was a sniper in the WWII Soviet Army. She racked up at least 54 kills of German soldiers before her death from wounds at age 20. She served part of the time in an all-woman sniper unit. Before the war she worked as a kindergarten teacher.
Known as "White Death" Finish Army Sniper, Simo Häyhä’s killing streak of 505 Soviet Invaders, in less than 100 days, came to an end when the sniper took an exploding bullet to the jaw. Häyhä subsequently fell into an 11-day coma and woke up March 13, 1940, on the very day the war ended.
