A dangerous woman in the most literal sense, 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.
"A Russian sniper after being captured by Finnish soldiers. Interesting to note the weapon in the background on the soldier looking at some papers. It’s a Degtyaryov Machine Gun or DT. It is not a DP-28 but related to it. The DT was mostly mounted on vehicles since the stock could collapse to make it more compact."
