Each success noted had to be verified by a witness and signed by a superior officer. The journal of Sutkus is one of only a few such books to have survived the war. It records more than kills, placing him as one of the war's most successful snipers. A large part of his journal is reproduced for the first time here. As a Hitler Youth member his skill as a marksman was quickly noted and, in July , aged 19, he was drafted into the Wehrmacht.

The first part of the book, looking at Sutkus's career as a German sniper, is quite dry. It is based on his wartime sniper diary, and after a brief introduction turns into a very matter-of fact blow-by-blow account of his successes. What we do get from this section of the book is just how lucky Sutkus was to survive the war after spending so much time in front of the front line something he repeatedly acknowledges. Sutkus's views on what makes a successful sniper are also scattered through this section. The second half of the book, which covers Sutkus's period in captivity and exile in the Soviet Union, is more interesting that the first.
