Book Review – The Master Sniper – Stephen Hunter

At the end of World War II, a German sniper with a kill tally climbing into the thousands begins his final mission, one that will change history. As a frantic search for information about his mission happens, the fate of a nation lies in the balance.

Unlike many of the World War II novels I have read, this one acknowledges the horrific treatment of Jews during the war and doesn’t shy away from what happened. The main character, the protaganist of the piece, is a well crafted German sniper who can kill anything, without emotion. Along with the other characters, Repp, the sniper, holds your attention as you read more about him. The book doesn’t glorify war or try to make it out to be anything other than what it really was.

The plot is slightly slow and I did find the ending a little ambigous but other than that, this is a very enjoyable book!
