  1. I found out the other day that Vasily Zaytsev from the film "Enemy At The Gates" was actually a real bloke, and that he wrote an Account of the Battle of Stalingrad, which is called 'Notes of a Sniper'. but cant seem to get my hands on it.

    Anyone know where i might be able to get hold of a copy?

  2. Any ISBN number ?.

    I wouldn't be surprised if alot of it was made up though, the russians used chat bacon when it came propaganda.
