Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this just as an impulse purchase as I saw it was recommended on my homepage and when it arrived I literally read it non-stop for 2 days and finished and at the end I wanted more and more. Hathcock's story is amazing yet sad, his ledgendary status within the Marines is well-deserved and some of his exploits are unbelievable.
The story takes you from his child years hunting rabbits and birds around his home to his growth as an expert marksman, winning the 1000 Yard Championships and the Wimbledon Cup. It then covers his two tours in Vietnam which includes him breaking the world record for the longest sniper shot at a young Vietcong at about 2500 yards or more! It also includes his assassination of a Vietnamese General deep behind enemy lines, killing a notorious and feared Vietcong female sniper and shooting an expert sniper who was tasked specifically to kill Hathcock. You also see his rise to become known as the 'White Feather' among the local popualtion and having a bounty put on his head by the NVA.
It is an incredible story about an incredible soldier.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
i have read this book three times , and i think it is probably one of the most engrossing books i have ever read . war is terrible , and we know how destructive it is yet man still fights them in the name of religion , politics etc the list goes on , but it is the fighting man , the humble soldier , that see,s the horrors and the deaths first hand , this story is about one mans experiences and memories of his vietnam war . gunnery sgt hathcock is one of those few men who if possible can be classed as the true ultimate warrior breed . his experiences are so incredible it is a travesty that the moguls in hollywood have not taken it upon themselves to bring it to the big screen , because it is one hell of a story .the sniper in modern warfare is a very very important weapon , but in history no other position has carried such stigma . you must read this book and discover how important the role gunnery sgt hathcock played in this immense war , as a sniper he was sent on incredibly dangerous missions , and carried them out with vigour and professionalism , and through his experience and training it shows you how he achieved the missions and tasks assigned to him , please buy this book and read it for yourself , it really is a classic account of one mans amazing tour of duty during the vietnam war .

This book isn't the first sniper based book I've bought and read but is certainly the one which I love the most.
The book details Carlos Hathcock's multiple tours of Vietnam and his eventual life in retirement after his injuries in the field.

The missions undertaken by this man are simply unbelievable and if it wasn't for the corroborative evidence and genuine quality of this book I'd have trouble believing them. This man has done it all as a sniper and helped to make the USMC snipers who they are today; they simply wouldn't have been trained if he hadn't done these feats.
The sniper shot in "Saving Private Ryan" where the guy gets hit through the scope in the eye; the Tom Berringer bit of creeping through a field in a gillie suit full of guards undetected in Sniper. Well those are two films who have taken direct inspiration from Carlos's amazing life. I don't want to give further details but it's worth a look for those.

If you like war books, true stories, etc this is worth a read. Whatever your country and allegiances this is a fascinating book. It also benefits from having information from both sides of the line, from the USMC and Carlos himself to the Vietnamese records and soldiers.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In my mid thirties, this was the first non-technical book I had read since college. It was loaned to me by my TaeKwonDo instructor who had served as a Marine recon sniper in Viet Nam. My girlfriend (now wife) almost left me because I wouldn't (no couldn't would be more accurate) put it down. I started it one evening and finished it by the next, then walked around almost stunned by his story for days (she got pretty fed up with me talking about it all the time). This was the beginning for me of literally more than a hundred true account books on Viet Nam, all of them stemming from the inspiration from this book.
The book is organized in chapters, each covering some incident in his tour. Offhand I cannot think of more than a couple that a sane person would believe to be true. Though it's been a year since I last read it (three times now, after writing this it will be four) I can easily think of four or five chapters that sound more like some drunken soldiers' ramblings about some mystical soldier they had only heard of who did astounding things that got more unbelievable each time the story was told. But from what I have heard from those who were there and other books on sniping that reference US military records, incredibly it's all true. Comparing Carlos Hathcock to the fictional movie characters like those portrayed by John Wayne, Stallone, Schwartzenegger and others or using the word "legend" to describe him doesn't begin to do justice to this man. He is a true Amercian hero! Somebody should make a movie about this guy.
