More Information
Nothing chills the blood of a soldier on the battle field mopre than the crack of a rifle shot & the cry of "Sniper!". A skilled sniper can stop even large units in their tracks & damage the enemy's morale. The Sniper at War looks at the impact & role of the sniper from the American Revolution to the present day. From the very beginning, snipers risked their lives for the chance of a clean "kill." Haskew looks at how the art of sniping in war has become more professional & specialized, with dedicated training courses & equipment. Famous snipers throughout history are profiled, such as Vasili Zaitsev, a hero of the battle of Stalingrad, with testimonies from individual snipers who took part in modern conflicts from Vietnam to Afghanistan & the Gulf.
