Book Information



Snipers are numbered among the most highly trained and efficient of all trained killers. They can act as lone agents or as part of a strategic military force. From the French sniper who shot Admiral Nelson from the topmast of a French frigate at the battle of Trafalgar, to Lee Harvey Oswald’s devastating and unexplained assassination of John F Kennedy in 1963, they have played a crucial – and shadowy – part in our history. Now defence expert Craig Cabell, with weapons archivist, Richard Brown, peel away the mystery surrounding these most deadly of gunmen, to reveal the true nature of the sniper, from the precision strategies used in war to the terror tactics of the infamous Washington ‘sniper’. This is an essential book for any military enthusiast.
