In a war where the enemy wants to die in battle, snipers may be the answer between victory and defeat.

Here in their own words are the compelling true stories of the snipers whose sole purpose is to eliminate the enemy with a single bullet. From the deserts and rubble-strewn streets of Iraq to the labyrinthine mountains of Afghanistan, this is life and death as seen through the scope of a highpowered rifle.
