I found this book to be very readable and highly informative about the role of the sniper in modern military conflicts. The book is written by Charles W. Sasser and Craig Roberts,(both veterans of the US Army) and consists of two different themes of writing. The first theme is a firsthand account (in first peron, from the sniper's perspective) from a few US Army and Marine Snipers of different eras, ranging from WWII to Beirut. This bit is highly readable and tells you almost what it's like to be out there. The second theme chronicles the role of the sniper in modern conflicts, on how sniping has evolved, and analyses some aspects of the sniper, and instances where the sniper has faced another sniper, such as the Konings-Zaitsev duel.
This book is very well researched and put together, and deserves 5 stars.
