Publisher Description

During the 1942 Battle of Stalingrad, two brilliant snipers – Antonov, a Russian, and Meister, a German – stalk each other through the city ruins.

For the beleaguered German and Russian armies, the terrible winter at their heels, there is no war beyond the carnage in Stalingrad’s grim skeleton. In desperation, orders come from the very top: victory is to be determined by a duel between champion snipers Antonov the Russian and Meister the German. A duel to the death.

For the two marksmen there is now no war but the race to pin the other in their sights. Who will be the dead hero and who the living legend? Only time will tell…
