Overview

Becoming an elite sniper involves more than learning how to shoot. Snipers need to know how to judge terrain, wind, and sometimes even the curve of the Earth. They train their eyes to spot enemy movement in the distance and to never hesitate. A sniper is more that a finger behind a trigger; he is a scout, a scientist, a strategist, and the support group for a platoon. Soldier of Fortune Magazine Guide to Super Snipers brings you into the world of some of the most accomplished snipers. From Finland to Iraq, Korea to Somalia, Soldier of Fortune Magazine provides stories from the eyes of the snipers who made the kills. These trained marksmen describe their method of taking the perfect shot, all the way down to the type of chewing tobacco they prefer.

Some of the super snipers in this collection include:

  • Major Charles Greene
  • Sergeant Dan Mills
  • Gunnery Sergeant Jack Coughlin
  • Chris Kyle
  • Robert K. Brown
  • And many more!

Every sniper—just like every situation that calls for a sniper—is unique, and Soldier of Fortune Magazine Guide to Super Snipers will show you every step of the way, as you find the target, narrow the scope, and take the shot.
