Sniper Ace 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Natas More than 1 year ago
Sniper Ace is a very good read if you enjoy an individual story amongst the turmoil of the moment. A large part of the book explores his life after the war. The majority of the book covers events from 30,000 feet, so it is more of an overview then a specifics and details examination. Easy read.
