    The 21st century sniper is a mature, intelligent shooter who leverages technology to his deadly advantage. He has spent thousands of hours honing his skills. He is a master of concealment in all environments, from the mountains of Afghanistan to the crowded streets of Iraq. He is trained in science and left alone to create the unique art of the kill. To the sniper, the battlefield is like a painter’s blank canvas. It is his job to simultaneously utilize tools, training, and creativity to deliver devastating psychological impact upon the battlefield. And it is he alone who is left with the intimacy of the kill.

    What did you like best about The 21st-Century Sniper? What did you like least?

    Was not worth the time. If you have even slightly above average knowledge of firearms and or military experience this book is not for you. The narrator mispronounced 30-06, pronounced Lapua 3 different ways etc etc. I gleaned no new knowledge from this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brandon Webb and Glen Doherty again?

    The Red Circle is a good read


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mispronounced acronyms and read too fast


    Was The 21st-Century Sniper worth the listening time?

    No

    Most people think of snipers as shooters perched in urban hides, dealing out death unseen from a considerable distance. But this description barely scratches the surface. Special operations snipers are men with stacked skill sets who have the ability to turn the tide of battles, even when they aren't pulling the trigger. Snipers have played an outsized role in the War on Terror that has earned them the Medal of Honor, Navy Cross, and countless other honors.

    There were a few new stories but mostly it just covered more in depth many sniper stories that have already been covered in other books. This book also bounces around quite a bit

    In the best-selling tradition of American Sniper and Shooter, Irving shares the true story of his extraordinary career, including his deployment to Afghanistan in the summer of 2009, when he set another record, this time for enemy kills on a single deployment. His teammates and chain of command labeled him "The Reaper," and his actions on the battlefield became the stuff of legend, culminating in an extraordinary face-off against an enemy sniper known simply as The Chechnian.

    I would have liked to have heard more about the training and selection. Would have liked to have heard more detail of some of the sub-plots I.E. what downed the 300WM? Still a good book and a refreshing NON-SEAL book worth reading.
