Summary
A definitive account of the history and techniques of snipers in warfare describes their first recorded application in the eleventh century, the training practices of the world's top sniper schools, and the use of snipers in various conflicts, in a military analysis that also shares anecdotes and descriptions of sniper weaponry. 30,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
The first written use of the word "sniper" was in a soldier's letter from India in 1773, and in fact, the slaying of King Harold at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 by an enemy archer may well be one of the earliest recorded instances of the art of the sniper. Tracing the role played by this unique soldier, from the time of the English Civil War and the American Revolutionary War to the Gulf War and Bosnia, Sniper also goes behind the scenes at the world's top sniper schools and shows what it takes to zero in on a human target from over half a mile away and then disappear before anyone even knows you're there. With riveting real-life anecdotes, detailed information on sniper rifles and ammunition, and in-depth diagrams explaining sniper tactics in the field, Sniper represents a unique and comprehensive volume on this specialized art of war. This second edition is updated for developments over the past five years, including new technology and the military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
