    Black Watch Snipers tells the epic story of five men who together fought their way through WWII as snipers and scouts. Their mission: to clear towns of German troops that that would decimate advancing Allied soldiers. This is a ‘Band of Brothers’ story as told by the men who experienced it: the surviving members of a sniper unit from Canada’s most storied Regiment - the Black Watch. They tell vivid, but chilling stories of their deadly solo attacks and encounters with the enemy. The Black Watch snipers did the dirtiest work in the war, armed with nothing but their wits and their rifles, as they endured the ultimate test of combat in the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi tyranny. Several of the men are still alive to talk about what they went through, and gripping, dramatic re-creations bring their experiences to life. This is their story. Close
