The Sniper by James Riordan

Riordan, James The Sniper, 226 p. Frances Lincoln, 2008. $8.95(paper). The Russian Army has recruited girls to act as snipers during WWII and send them out to capture the Commander-in-Chief of the Germany army during their attempt to capture Stalingrad. Based on a true story. Boys who are interested in the un-niceties of war will probably love this very frank, gritty novel. If any one needs to be reminded that war is not pretty, this is one way to read about it! MS, HS – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.

Well the sniper is sent to capture the Commander in Chief of the Germans 6th army not the commander in chief of the German army. that would mean that see was sent to capture Hitler which is not true.

Mr.Mysteries, if you're going to be a pedantic whack-job about the synopsis of the text, I think you should at least have the decency to write properly yourself. Your grammar is terrible!
