I found this book factual, there were F4 Phantoms flying mission over South Vietnam in 1964, and Marine Corps did not have a sniper rifle for snipers until late 1965.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
1964 all Marines were issued the M 14 which fired 7.65 NATO ammo, even the cooks and would be snipers. Late 1965 the Corps issued all snipers the adopted sniper
the sniper weapon: Winchester model 70 in 30.06 cal. This became the standard issued sniper rifle. I found a few misspelled words but that
did not keep me from enjoying a great book

Waste of time
Overly dramatized almost to the point of being unbelievable. Accuaracy of equipment used in the story questionable. Never heard of any snipers using Weatherby rifles or even Weatherby caliber chamberings. Navy F4 Phantoms in the early 60's? I thought A4's and A7's were the norm at that time and even so im not sure Phantoms ever fired air to ground 'rockets'. Too many misspellings. It's quiet....not quite...when you mean to be silent. Even one of the characters names is misspelled repeatedly. Sorry I spent the money on this.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
