Book Description

HE HELPED START IT ALL! The thrilling and astounding story of Eric England, greatest long-range shooter in world history and legendary Marine scout sniper. Loaded with rare illustrations. Input from Carlos Hathcock, NRA, USMC Commandant, Sen. Zell Miller, NASCAR's Bill Elliott, and many other notables. Back by popular worldwide demand.

This book was endorsed by the USMC Commandant and Sgt. Major, the USMC Scout-Sniper Association, and the Scout-Sniper Schools of the USMC and US Army.

Each chapter is a vignette of different angles of his life, and the environmental forces that made him who he is, which brings the reader into a closeness with this amazing yet humble hero. Chapters range from mind-blowing combat experiences, to insights into gumption and superhuman skill, and even the contagious and never-dying sense of humor that hovers about this unusual man.

Several references to his Appalachian roots help bridge the gap between the hills of North Georgia and the hills of I Corps in Vietnam, and bring out the all-American man to a point of greater understanding... as in the lives of Appalachian legends like Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, and Carlos Hathcock.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much hero worship by the author 4 Jan. 2014
By breezer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read 50% of this book before chucking it. I got fed up by the fawning butt kissing of the writer. I find it hard to believe that America lost the Vietnam war having Eric England! The folksie hill billy sayings and stories really got on my nerves. Could have been a great book. If most of England's achievements had not been repeated, the book would have a hundred pages less.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me 25 Aug. 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sycophantic, disorganised and grammatically poor. I found this real struggle. May appeal more to fans of competition shooting, but failed to engage me at all.
