The Deadliest Sniper In History, Simo Hayha
Simo Häyhä was a Finnish farmer born in the 1900's, known around his village for his wickedly sharp aim with a hunting rifle.
In 1939, his life was turned upside down when Stalin and The Red Army invaded Finland.
Rushed to the front, his kill-count quickly rose.
His fellow Finns nicknamed him The Magic Sniper, but to the Russians he was Belaya Smert, The White Death.
In the freezing darkness, with a mouthful of snow to conceal his breath, The White Death lay waiting. Entire Russian platoons would come to a standstill, none wanting to be the next to fall into the crosshairs...
Tune in for the story of Finland's national hero, Simo Häyhä!
