The sniper is the big-game hunter of the battlefield, and he needs all of the skills of a woodsman, marksman, hunter, and poacher.He must possess the field craft to be able to position himself for a killing shot, and he must be able to effectively place a single bullet into his intended target. Gunnery Sergeant Hathcock was able to do all of these things. There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock. A legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling and all true.
