"Dead Nazis are harmless. Therefore, if I kill a Nazi, I am saving lives."
Lyudmilla Pavlichenko (1916 - 1974)
RED ARMY SNIPER
The deadliest female sniper in history, ‘Lady Death’ Lyudmila Pavlichenko was a Soviet soldier during WWII. She terrorized Nazis, recording over 300 confirmed kills.
Pavlichenko, the first Soviet citizen invited to the White House, toured America & gave speeches about the war effort. Throughout her US tour, the decorated war hero had to constantly answer reporters' questions about makeup & clothes. Fed up, she famously responded:
“Gentlemen. I am 25 years old & I have killed 309 fascist invaders by now. Don’t you think, gentlemen, that you have been hiding behind my back for too long?”
