Roza Yegorovna Shanina (Russian: Ро́за Его́ровна Ша́нина; 3 April 1924 – 28 January 1945) was a Soviet sniper during the German-Soviet War. She was responsible for 54 confirmed kills, 12 during the Battle of Vilnius.

On June 22, 1943, Shanina enlisted in the Red Army's Vsevobuch, subsequently attending the Central Female Sniper Academy in Podolsk. Shanina joined the 184th Rifle Division on April 2, 1944, where a separate female sniper platoon was formed. She was awarded the Order of Glory on June 18 and again on September 22, 1944.

On December 12, 1944 Roza was shot in the shoulder, and on December 27, 1944 was awarded the Medal for Valor among the first woman snipers.

Shanina died in a battle near the khutor of Rikhau. Her battle diary and several letters have been published.

Getting a pretty girl to smile counts as action in my book.

When you say "real historic action", does that include staged photos posed by the Soviet state propaganda organs? ;)
