The definitive book on the technique & history of the most isolated & unique art of warfare. Riveting real-life anecdotes, detailed info on sniper rifles & ammo, & in-depth diagrams explaining sniper tactics in the field. 100+ color & B&W photos; 7x9 inches, 192 pgs.

More Information
The first written use of the word "sniper" was in a soldier's letter from India in 1773, and in fact, the slaying of King Harold at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 by an enemy archer may well beone of the earliest recorded instances of the art of the sniper. Tracing the role played by this unique solder, from the time of the English Civil War and the American Revolutionary War to the Gulf War andBosnia, Sniper also goes behind the scenes at the world's top sniper schools and shows what it takes to zero in on a human target from over half a mile away and then disappear before anyone even knows you're there.
