Sniper One: The Blistering True Story of a British&hellip by Sgt. Dan Mills
4 of 4 people found the following review helpful
Not a bad book but could have been better.
After reading the reviews I was expecting something insightful which would stay with me for a long time. However, it tends to read as one other reviewer put it "Like a Sun journalist has written it".
Some of the facts are incorrect, especially when talking about a "Draganov" sniper rifle (it's spelt Dragunov).
This spoilt it for me as the lack of care made me question some of the other details......
To sum up; if you want a book along the lines of Michael Herr's Dispatches you'll be disappointed. If you want a Boy's Own Adventure which cracks along apace you'll be pleased.
Buy it & see what you think......
