    der Meisterschutze (The Master Sniper)...

    A very good action book, especially if you like WWII stories & snipers!

    The story starts a little slow, flipping back and worth between the German sniper Repp and the American officer Leets and his British counterpart Outhwaithe, but kicks into high gear and never lets up a few chapters in.

    This novel was Stephen Hunter's 1st book, written in 1980. For a 1st novel, its excellent.

    The story / plot of this book is amazing,once you find out what Repp's mission is, it will blow you away, this book should have been a movie long, long ago.

    The Germans have a new weapon "Vampir (Vampire)", a highly sophisticated nightvision apparatus that attaches to a rifle, allowing the shooter to work at night and "Vampir" shoots a special 100 % lead round that makes very little sound when fired. Their is only one "Vampir" and the Germans have got their best man for the job, a German named Repp "der Meisterschutze (The Master Sniper)" as fellow Germans and the Jews know him. Germany is losing the war and its almost over, but Repp has one more mission to complete, a mission that could change the world.

    An American officer named Leets has a hunch that something big is about to happen, he just doesnt know what or who it is, yet!

    Good action, great characters and great storytelling from Stephen Hunter!

    "Dirty White Boys" by Stephen Hunter was entertaining, I think "The Master Sniper" was a little better. Can't wait to read "Point of Impact" next!

    One of few

    I haven't read many books in my life, but this is at the top of that short list. It is a thrilling story with fantastic plot twist and a ruthless villian.
