This is the book Robert Ludlum only wished he could write. I'm so gawdalmighty tired of books with Nazis in them and books about the US Civil War, but that's another whine. I am so glad I didn't. Every single German in this book is a real human being, even the monsters, and it goes without saying that all the characters, upstanders like Bob and Kathy and weasels like Jerry are great, too. I personally think this book is worth reading for the conversations between Karl and Wili alone.
I was surprised to learn that Sniper's Honor is ninth in this series. Because it's so damn good.
Nine books in, a lot of series' authors lose orbit and start to wander off character development, scene setting and complex narrative, sometimes even getting lazy in their writing. None of that here, vide It was better not to pay too much attention to the machine or the men flying it. After all, what difference did it make? Knowing the pilot's name and what he called his airplane didn't matter. The airplane would get her there or not, depending on a thousand factors over which she had no control. The Germans would shoot it down or they would not; they would have already taken the landing site or they would not have; the pilot found the right site or he did not.
None of it had anything to do with her. She could not let herself invest emotion in the idea of this preposterous little kite being night-navigated to a tiny landing field on a mountain plateau surrounded on all sides by peaks and lit only by torchlight. Swagger stared at a dummy SS man in the spotty-leopard dapple of the late-war camouflage-pattern smock, heavy jackboots, with an MP in his hands and all the right equipment in place, the bread bag, the entrenching tool, a holstered Luger, a foot of wicked bayonet, the haversack, that instantly recognizable helmet with the medieval steel flare that covered the ears and back of the neck and made every Landser somehow look like a Teutonic knight out to slaughter the inferior.
Each, as a matter of fact, hated knifework. It was awful. It was always intimate and messy and left regret and depression and self-loathing. It wasn't worth going through for any nutcase paperhanger from Austria, that was for sure, but only out of duty to some other thing, variously defined as the Fatherland or Greater Germany but really just the other guys in the unit, whom you didn't want to let down. I have never been a soldier but I know, I KNOW that every word of this narrative about soldiers rings absolutely true.
And Hunter's women are badasses to behold "That premise is no longer operative. You're fighting for your reasons. You're in love with Mili, you old coot, don't say you're not, and it's the best fight you ever had. Well, I'm fighting for mine, which is that no asshole comes along and says, 'Sweetie, do us a favor and don't write the story. Nobody tells me to go away like a good little girl. I was never a good little girl. Good little girls don't become reporters. Besides, the story's already on the budget. Sniper's Honor should be held up as a template for anyone who ever thought they wanted to write action adventure.
Highly recommended, especially if you want a good cardiovascular workout. Nov 27, Mike rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction , russia , xcharity , military , history. Sniper's Honor was 4 Sniper Rounds on target, losing only a star for a slightly implausible modern day bad guy. But the part of the book that takes place back in WWII is superb.
Hunter knows how to write sniper tactics and CQB, just great fights. He needs something to get him interested and it just so happens an old journalist acquaintance needs help researching the story o Sniper's Honor was 4 Sniper Rounds on target, losing only a star for a slightly implausible modern day bad guy. The book alternates between the present and the past. Hunter captures the essence of modern historical appreciation of the war on the Ostfront: view spoiler [ There was nothing but there there.
Who could begin to understand it? But there was so much more. Forgotten fights that were as big, really, as Normandy, where fleets of tanks threw themselves against each other and men in the thousands died in flames or were torn to shreds by explosions. Over and over, year after year after year, the death toll incomprehensible. Those fights were too obscure to have flames.
There was a sadness to it. People should know about this stuff. People should care about the sacrifice, the pain, the death that convulsed the world; yet here was a whole huge piece of it so obscure that no one in the West had even acknowledged it. What place is this, where are we now? I am the grass, I cover all. The Germans run the gamut from evil SS to some cocky fallschirmjaegers. The mission given to Mili is almost impossible and she is hunted by all, betrayed and almost alone.
Of course Swagger runs into some bad guys while researching the story because it may reveal a current day terrorist attack that was the weakest part of the book. Note to bad guys: don't take on Swagger in a gunfight, it usually goes badly for you. Great story!
Feb 18, Danny Tyran rated it it was amazing Shelves: i-have-one , historical-novel , war , thriller , genocide , sniper. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is Stephen Hunter at his best. He gave us here three stories in one, which intertwine and complete each other: 1. An historical novel about a master sniper named Ludmilla "Mili" Petrova nicknamed Die weisse Hexe the white witch. If you Google "female snipers and WWII", you will find a Ludmilla and a Petrova, both beautiful female snipers, both very efficient with a rifle and deadly.
Mili had to assassinate a monster named Groedl, who killed thousands of Ukrainians, particularly the Jews among them. Mili had even a flashback about a previous battle during which she killed many German soldiers to stop their slow death in horrible pain. An investigation in present time full of gunfights, car chases and escapes. Swagger and Kathy Reilly, a newspaper correspondent for the Washington Post, based in Moscow, investigate about what happened to Mili.
We discover that she managed to anger both Stalin and Hitler causing both sides to hunt her. We follow her last mission in Yaremche in , before her disappearance. Why was she erased of all documents as Russian, than German?
Did she succeed to achieve her mission? Was she killed or did she survive? If she survived, how? And where did she disappear? Our two MCs maneuver to evade Russian gangsters and merciless intelligence operatives to unveil a mystery that nobody wants to be solved. A thriller about present time terrorism. This part is a cerebral cyber-intelligence narrative in which a skillful Mossad operative in the suburbs of Tel Aviv managed to piece together a terrorist plot against Israel, which represented the last impulse of the Third Reich.
The terrorists were preparing an operation to destroy the Mossad and as many Jews as possible. The leader of this group of terrorists, named Vassily Strelnikov about to be sworn minister of trade in Moscow , was the son of Basil Krulov, a traitor and a spy for the SS, who is an important character of the historical sub-plot of the novel. The magic of Hunter consists in following these three sub-plots in parallel, each of them bringing something to understand the others and encasing perfectly in each other at the right time. As usual, Hunter demonstrates his encyclopedic knowledge of weapons of all kinds, his understanding of WWII and his facility to create very believable characters.
No one is perfectly evil, no one only good. As a matter of fact, one of his most likable characters of this novel in a German soldier named Karl Von Drehle. As said before, this novel is full of action in present time as in the past. Some parts of the story are funny, particularly the end of chapter 26 and chapter We too thought that. But apparently not Groedl nor the German authorities. Hunter demonstrates very well that most soldiers do not care about ideology. Some of them even using propaganda leaflets Signal as toilet paper. They do their job and try to survive, period.
People should care about the sacrifice, the pain, the death that convulsed the world; yet here was a whole huge piece of it so obscure that no one in the West had ever acknowledged it. Hunter, now the West can acknowledge it. The happy ending is a little airy fairy and far fetched though. But since most of his American readers are addicted to HEAs, the ending will surely please them. So I give it five stars. Dec 07, Jon Kurtz rated it really liked it. I deemed that novel worthy of three stars average , but included negative comments in my review, specifically regarding excessive detail, prolonged scenes, and a disjointed pace that switched form present to past.
Thankfully, Sniper's Honor exhibited none of these perceived shortcomings. In Sniper's Honor, Bob Lee Swagger finds himself embroiled in a deadly mystery conceived nearly seventy years in the past during the German retreat from Ukraine. Kathy Reilly, a journalist and friend, contacts Swagger from Russia. The most unusual aspect of the enigma, Mili's files have been purged by both sides, Russia and Germany. Sensing a cover up, both Swagger and Reilly scour Ukraine in search of answers.
Unknown to them, powerful people need the mystery of the White Witch to remain buried. As expected in most Swagger novels, gunfights, pragmatic discourse, and detailed fighting nomenclature abound. Swagger quickly concludes that a brave and selfless sniper's honor may have been expunged to protect the powerful and elite of both sides. As with The Third Bullet, chapters alternate between present and past. I voiced my displeasure with this style previously, however, in this instance Hunter does a much better job presenting and linking the different periods. While disconcerting initially, I found myself enjoying the back and forth as the book progressed.
Finally, Hunter includes a few plot twists as the story unfolds, bolstering interest in the characters' outcomes.
Hunter and Reilly face death in the present, while Mili faces it in the past. Action abounds as the tale reaches a crescendo and conclusion you may not expect. That's it for detail. No sense in ruining the story for those inclined to read it. On a more detailed scale, I provide Sniper's Honor with a 4. Shelves: wwii , thriller , mystery. What they don't expect is to face danger from a third player in a contest of wills that could mean their death. Set against the atrocities and horror of WWII, the description evokes starkly realistic images of the brutality and devastation of a landscape under siege.
Even in the present Stephen Hunter captures the political undercurrents, and a national mood that reveres the valour of its past heroes.
His passion for the weaponry and tools of warfare is evident. Integral to the plot he endows them with life and even personality. With skilful dexterity Stephen Hunter draws together threads of a story that not only includes a hunt for missing pieces of a puzzle and a terrorist plot in the present, but also follows Mili Petrova's last mission in Yaremche in Without losing continuity he weaves them together in a story that ends in an explosive and surprising climax.
Historically-based, "Sniper's Honour" is set in a war ravaged country where both sides demonstrate their inhumanity and cruelty, where there are no good or bad guys and where the innocent suffer the fallout of maniacal dogma and hatred. It is a story of courage, determination, mercy and deliverance amid political mayhem, brutality and tragedy. The characters are well-developed and complex, adding power and emotional intensity to a story that's a page turner from beginning to the end.
Bob Lee Nailer Swagger is a haunting personality. A man in his sixties with an adventurous spirit who's plagued by ghosts and memories of the past,he's intuitive, clever and brave. Kathy Reilly his friend and journalist is a subtle provocateur who's tart , inquisitive and armed with a wry sense of humour. Mili "the White Witch" Petrova is as beautiful as she is skilled with a gun.
