In 1991, Chuck Mawhinney was reluctantly dragged out of anonymity when it was revealed that he held the record among United States Marine Corps snipers with over 103 confirmed kills.
This story takes a look at the mindset and philosophy of an American Sniper as he is thrown into Arizona territory (named as such because of its numerous Wild West style firefights) at the height of the Vietnam War.

Chuck Mawhinney is a former Marine, who performed his job to the highest standards, a great book about a great man in my opinion, not one to brag , his exploits speak for themselves, and just like other snipers , people look at the number of kills these Snipers had. But to see it another way, how many lives of Marines and other services were saved because of these men.
