A top sniper, codenamed "Arrow," loads her gun in a safe room in Sarajevo, Tuesday, June 30, 1992. The 20-year old Serb who shoots for the Bosnian forces says she has lost count of the number of people she has killed, but that she finds it difficult to pull the trigger. The former journalism student says most of her targets are other snipers on the Serbian side.

  1. Sad for her false loyalty due to her geographic location - she was on the wrong side, IMHO.

    1. Her comments were interesting. I certainly would like to know what became of her, but haven't found anything so far. Might make a good book.

  3. I would have that beautiful actress who played the Mossad agent on NCIS (Ziva) play her part.

  5. Likely just propaganda. Neither side kept records. So, every surviver could claim to be the high score.

    Most of the targets of snipers (on both sides) in Serajevo were civilians out getting groceries and going to funerals. Shooting at other snipers is just too hard. The intention of the forces engaged was to drive the other side (men women and children) out of the city to make it "ethnically pure". Of course, that term is meaningless since both sides were genetically and culturally identical.
