Synopsis

Synopsis

This hard hitting account details the men, weapons and techniques used to coldly eliminate high value targets on the battlefield, in hostage situations, in political assassinations and elsewhere.

Though many books have become best sellers through telling one side of the story - a sniper's experiences, a training manual or a weapons catalogue - none before have combined the whole spectrum of a sniper's life and skills into one gripping book. Selection, history, training, weapons, field craft, tactics, special operations and much more.

This book goes beyond the general infantry use of snipers: it examines the role of the sniper, and the unique skills employed, when serving as part of a Special Forces unit including the British SAS, the US Navy Seals and the Russian Spetznaz.

The book is illustrated throughout with photographs of every aspect of the sniper's trade and stories from the real-life experiences of the author's comrades: men who have served in almost every overt and covert conflict since the Second World War.
Praise

Praise

"...provides an excellent account of the men and weapons used to eliminate targets on the battlefield, and provides a wide-ranging analysis of the making of a sniper ... The result is a military analysis that is suitable for any military collection looking for specifics oon the training ond applications of the sniper in a military operation - a pick for any collection strong in special forces development."
- The Midwest Book Review (April 2013)
