Publisher's Summary

In the U.S. Marine Corps, the most dangerous job in combat is that of the sniper. With no backup and little communication with the outside world, these men disappear for weeks on end in the wilderness with nothing but intellect and iron will to protect them - as they watch, wait, and finally strike. But of all of the snipers who ever hunted human prey, one man stands above the rest as the most legendary fighting man to ever pull a trigger. That man is Carlos Hathcock.

Silent Warrior tells the incredible story of Hathcock, with harrowing, never-before-published accounts of courage and perseverance. These are the powerful stories of a man who rose to greatness not for personal gain or glory but for duty and honor. A rare inside look at the U.S. Marines' most challenging missions - and one man who made military history.

Just like Marine stories should be told

A great book to enjoy listening to. A final tribute to White Feather, his work, his legacy, and his life.

Reconstruction of a great man's life

Carlos Hathcock saved a lot of lives doing what he did, and it boggles the mind how he and other snipers were able to get in and get out when in enemy territory. They volunteered over and over to go into the jungle beyond friendly lines.

What the author did is use some artistic license to recreate conversations, and this helps to reveal some emotions Hathcock must have had. The odd thing at the book's conclusion was how I felt Hathcock was unknowable. A whole book and I didn't know the guy. That's how private and discreet Hathcock was, a noble guy to the core.

As good as the first!

Loved this book as much as Marine Sniper.... what a fantastic tribute to the man who was and still is one of the greatest Marines. Thankful to have read more about his life and missions. His work ethic and courage facing life's hardest moments is truly inspiring. Wish I could have met him and shook his hand. God Bless all who serve and protect our freedom. Thank you Charles for telling us the rest of his story.

Expertly Written

This book is written so eloquently, I plan on buying a printed copy just so I can take it all in again. The descriptions about Marine life now have meaning to me, which could have never happened without reading this book. Simply loved the honor upheld throughout. Makes an American feel even more patriotic to know the inside story.

meh

A good listen, but an awful lot of creative license. Worth the listen if you're a Hathcock fan.

Do Not Buy

What would have made Silent Warrior better?

Not being written

Would you ever listen to anything by Charles Henderson again?

Absolutely not.

Any additional comments?

He's just retelling stories. This is a complete plagiarism of several books. I equate it to a 7th grader copying and pasting a book report from the internet.
