This is a Biography of Carlos Hathcock a Marine Corps sniper. While reading this book I was just a little bored with it. Then I find out it is the second book to "Marine Sniper" by Charles Henderson. So I went out and bought this book. Carlos Hathcock was a Marine Corps sniper during the Vietnam War. Mr. Hathcock has 93 confirmed kills out of as many as 300. Mr Hathcock was also one of the most famous snipers in United States history. Mr. Hathcock also had a $30,000 bounty on his head. I do not know about you, I?m damn glad he was on our side. These 2 books were well worth the reading. Being in the Marine Corps infantry myself, I learned a lot from just reading these books. Mr. Hathcock also won top honors at a National Rifle match one year before going to Vietnam. Carlos N. Hathcock served his country with duty and honor. At the age of 57 Carlos Hathcock died from Multiple Sclerosis. It was said that it was a sad day for many Marines who knew him. Looking back at the 2 books I will admit that I had a tear in my eye.

To all Marines who have not had a chance to read these books you should. I would rate these books 5 stars.
