Publisher's Summary

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. These are the most experienced warriors on the battlefield, oftentimes the units' best assaulters with years of door-kicking under their belt. These are the men who run ops in small teams across borders, or dress like locals and pull off high-risk vehicle reconnaissance and singleton missions in non-permissive environments.

Modern American Snipers tells the inside story of some of the most heroic patriots in recent American history by the friends and colleagues who knew them best, including: The Legend - Chris Kyle, SEAL Team 3 Chief and the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history; The Reaper - Nick Irving, the first African-American to serve as a sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion, and its deadliest, with 33 confirmed kills; Robert Horrigan, Delta sniper who played a critical role in Operation Anaconda; Don Hollenbaugh, Delta Operator who earned the Distinguished Service Cross while embedded with a Marine platoon in the First Battle of Fallujah.

    "More detail on stories you've already read"

    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

    "inside baseball for any student of GWOT"

    He put together a lot of great info that hadn't been in print before. this isn't the typical warmed over stories that are in allot of books that purport to have sniper stories. Actually has more info on delta and six along with the amazing capabilities of the 75th rangers that Noone knows of outside of the SOF community. connects dots that are out in other books makes this very satisfying

    "A bit if the inside story"

    I recommend this book for anyone interested in the stories of the snipers and Tier 1-3 units involved in GWOT. It is not about tactics, training, or equipment as much as it is about the experiences, rivalries, and stand-outs.

    "One of the better spec ops books"

    I like pretty much everything. The accounts of many different people in all the different situations, was very enthralling. The presenter/speaker was one of the best I've listened to.

    "Mish-mash of stories"

    kind of jumbled several stories together. At times there seemed to be no clear logic to the progression. most parts about Chris Kyle were just regurgitated excerpts from American Sniper.
