During the 1939–1940 Winter War, in temperatures as low as –40 °C, a Finnish sniper undertook a killing spree against the Soviets that saw him single-handedly take the lives of at least 700 men in less than 100 days. Over 500 of these he shot using a standard, bolt-action rifle with non-telescopic sights. At one point, he was credited with the highest number of confirmed kills in any war in history. Is it any wonder he earned the nickname The White Death among his enemies? Meet the man who would take Rambo to the cleaners.
