Overview

In the War on Terror, there are no set battles. The fanatical enemy adheres to no warrior code or international law. Their only desire is to kill—or be killed.

That’s where the snipers of the U.S. Marines, Army, and Navy SEALs come in . . .
 
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 Iraq to Afghanistan, this is life and death as seen through the scope of a high-powered rifle.
 
These snipers’ stories illustrate the mental discipline and psychological strength that they must possess to accomplish their missions, the effect a sniper’s skill and reputation has on the enemy, and how they deal with the stark reality of their work after the target is neutralized—and after a sniper returns to civilian life.
 
Part wartime chronicle, part psychological exploration of the warrior mind, and part exposé into a secretive brotherhood of military snipers, Hunters is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn the truth about war when it’s fought one kill at a time.
