Sniper traces the role played by the lone, unseen sharpshooter from the time of the English Civil War and American War of Independence through both world wars to Vietnam, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. The book also examines the psychological make-up of the sniper, whether operating alone or, as is more common today, as part of a two-man team. It also explores what goes on behind the scenes at the world’s sniper schools.

Beyond the world of the military, Sniper also looks at the work of police marksmen and the guidelines they follow, as well as pressures they endure, working in a civilian arena. The extensively researched text also includes first-hand accounts from snipers themselves, including IRA terrorists, and how they are dealt with by counter-sniping.

With detailed information about tactics, rifles and bullets used and illustrated with 230 black-and-white and colour photographs and artworks, Sniper provides a comprehensive insight into this most specialist military skill.
