Zhang Taofang is China’s most celebrated marksman, having scored, depending on the source, between 71 and 214 kills during his tour of service in the Korean War using just his rifle’s iron sights. The impressive thing here is that Zhang reportedly scored those kills in just 32 days. Zhang’s achievement came amid a struggle between Chinese and United Nations forces for control of a strategic hill. The battle occurred in the final months of the Korean War, with the UN making a last-ditch effort to secure the area from communist forces. Zhang, a member of the 214th Regiment of the People’s Liberation Army, was tasked with holding the hill–which he did in incredible fashion, picking off the attacking UN troops en masse. Zhang helped keep the hill as a part of North Korea, solidifying him as one of history’s most deadly snipers.
