I found this awesome post on cracked.com about 5 dudes, in various wars, who achieved more impressive and astounding feats of bravery than the most unbelievable Hollywood movies. I guess sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction.
At #5: Over the course of 100 days, Finnish farmer Simo Hayha (pictured above) killed 542 Russians with his rifle. He took out another 150 or so with his SMG, sending his credited kill-count up to 705. (Though other accounts bring the total up to something nearer 750)
