Sniper in Action

Focusing on famous snipers throughout history, Sniper in Action explores the origins, development and impact of the sniper from the American War of Independence to the present day. Featuring numerous eye-witness accounts, famous 'crack shots' are profiled, such as Stalingrad hero Vasili Zaitsev, Vietnam War marksman Chuck Mawhinney, and Timothy L. Kellner from the recent Iraq conflict. The book also details the equipment, tactics, and techniques of the marksman from the original skirmishers of the late eighteenth century to the highly-trained specialists of today's hi-tech armed forces.
Packed with first-hand accounts, Sniper in Action is the definitive guide to these secretive and deadly individuals and the role they have played in conflicts over the last three hundred years.
