Publisher's Summary

There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.

  • Story

Every man should read this book

As the title said. One of the best war stories of all time. The sniper technics of that age far surpasses the technology aided sniping of today

  • Story

Through and through a humble champion that makes most of today's war stories seem like video game mission one hour at a time

This guy was absolutely amazing and I hope to find another book on him the detail weren't quite as riveting as for example the reaper but this guy has more skill and is more badass than any other warrior I've read or heard about he's right there with the white death
Seriously is downplayed and gives Carlos a humble black and white image I've read about most ever popular modern sniper and no one holds a candle I assure you
Sorry for bad grammar phones shattered haha

Great Story

What did you love best about Marine Sniper?

I loved the focus on one single element of the Vietnam war. It wasn't the usual "war is hell" "why are we here" Vietnam story. It's a story of the development and success of the sniper program during the war.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I listen to a lot of "war" audio books. This one what probably the best I've listened to so far.
