Simo Häyhä – Baddest badass of all badasses

The story of a Finnish WW II sniper Simo Häyhä is pretty amazing. A soft-spoken farmer standing at 5 feet tall killed more enemy soldiers than any other sniper in any army in history.

His official kill count stands at 505 confirmed sniper kills. Even more amazing is that those kills were achieved in a 100 day span. By some sources it’s estimated that he killed one Soviet soldier for every hour of daylight during those 100 days. I’m not sure it’s entirely accurate though, but not entirely impossible given the short days during wintertime in Finland.

He was an unstoppable killing machine the likes of which the world has never known before or since.

Damn right!
