This book is brimming with fascinating information about the sniper's art. It includes a comprehensive overview of snipers throughout history and their evolving role in combat. But the crux of the book is it's detailed descriptions of sniper rifle technology and how new advances in firearm manufacturing have increased accuracy. The book is printed on high-quality glossy stock, which makes the many photos, diagrams, and drawings look particularly beautiful. Though clearly not the work of professional writers (the sometimes clumsy prose is the one thing keeping this book from a five-star review), the authors obviously know what they're talking about from years of training and service and bring a wealth of experience to their of craft. This new edition was published after Glen Doherty's death in Benghazi, and includes moving tributes by Webb and Kyle to a man who's selfless sacrifice for his country will not soon be forgotten.
