Not for the squeamish. It goes into great detail about the character of a sniper. This book is the definitive report on the history of snipers around the world. Youll want to cheer at the successes and mourn the failures. Its a hard book to put down. A great read.

I loved this book, so if you like the military non-fiction genre you probably will too. Contains many personal accounts from snipers from the 40s on. From the back: In WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Beirut, American snipers honed the vital art of delivering a single accurate shot from nowhere - and devastating enemy morale...This book is their powerful personal record, of desperate trials and proud feats.
