Arnold Crabtree WWI British Sniper
by Alex Devaney
At the beginning of WW1, German snipers executed mass killings along the trenches of Flanders and France. Sniper bullets cut down thousands of Kitcheners' Soldiers in the prime of life. Amidst, exploding shells and smoke, a carnage of mangled corpses, sank in a sea of mud. The Kaiser's crack-shot marksmen were off to a winning start.

Arnold Crabtree, WWI British Sniper is a very interesting, and very concise snippet of history. It is a twenty-minute glimpse into the life and death of a common soldier on the Western Front in the early days of that war that the United States took so very long to join. One always hears of machine gun charges and gas attacks. The role of snipers has heretofore been ignored. I'd like to thank Alex Devaney for shedding light on the topic.
