    Focusing on famous snipers throughout history, Sniper in Action explores the origins, development and impact of the sniper from the American War of Independence to the present day. Featuring numerous first-hand accounts, famous ‘crack shots’ are profiled, such as Vasili Zaitsev, a hero of the battle of Stalingrad, Vietnam War marksman Chuck Mawhinney, credited with 103 kills, and Timothy L. Kellner, credited with 139 kills in the recent Iraq conflict.

    As well as profiling famous snipers, the book details the equipment, tactics, and techniques of the marksman as it has developed on the battlefield from the original skirmishers of the late eighteenth century to the highly trained specialists of today’s hi-tech armed forces. Packed with first hand accounts, Sniper in Action is the definitive guide to these secretive and deadly individuals and the role they have played in conflicts over the last three hundred years.
