Successful German Snipers of WWI

Post by Edward L. Hsiao » 15 Mar 2012 04:27

Gentlemen,

It's rather strange that there isn't much about names of successful snipers of the Imperial German Army and Navy. I know that German snipers were experts in disguise and marksmanship. They took a heavy toll on the Allies on the Western front and the Russians on the Eastern Front. Many records of German snipers in combat during WWI were lost. Can anyone come up with a couple of names of German snipers who were most successful during the war. I think were plenty of German snipers who scored over 100 confirmed kills. I know that information is scarce.

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao

Next issue of Iron Cross magazine will have something about WW1 German snipers.

I never heard of Iron Cross Magazine. At last, the exploits of German snipers will come to light finally in that magazine!
