Simo Hayha, "The White Death" is considered to be the most effective sniper in Human History. He served in the Finnish Civil Guard during the Winter War with the Soviet Union in 1939-1940. Over the course of 100 days on the Kollaa Front, Hayha killed 705 Soviet Soldiers, including 542 with his bolt-action M28-30 Mosin Nagant carbine. He also refused to use a scope, making all of his kills with traditional iron sights.
