5.0 out of 5 stars A STORY OF SELF DISCIPLINE AND HEROISM
There are few books that capture the essence of a Marine the way that this tale does. Gunny Hatchcock was more than a Marine, he was also a heroe and a pioneer. His mastering of the sniper craft and his eventual legend were responsible for the ultimate success of the Marine Corps sniper program.
Charles Henderson does an admirable job with this book but...

2.0 out of 5 stars Read Silent Warrior instead
This is the original book, written about Carlos Hathcock in 1985.

A second book, also written by Charles Henderson called Silent Warrior in 2000, is also about Hathcock. Some of this book is cut and pasted in the second book.

This book however does not have the detail on the background on some of Hathcock's greatest kills, The Frenchman, the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, December 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Marine Sniper: 93 Confirmed Kills (Paperback)
This was a good book that was hard to put down. This man really did it and lived to tell the tale. I looked him up on youtube and the book put a whole new aspect of what these men go through. It was a really good book that taught me alot of the things that our military snipers really go through. I did 4 yrs. in the navy however is was nothing of a challenge as this mans carrier in the Marines. It is sad though he did not get to get the 20 yrs. that is need for full benefits lacking 2 months. I hate our country did this to him. He deserved better treatment than that. He put his life on the line to be shorted is so sad..

if you want to know what viet nam (and more particularly) what sniping in viet nam was like, this book is for you. factual, no bragging. hathcock was a great american, a great marine, and a great sniper; henderson was definitely the one to write about him. you will live this tale as you read it.

The book was extremely well written about the tremendous courage and bravery of Carlos Hathcock. Unless you have lived through a war you can't really imagine the true horror of his situations. Fantastic. The follow-up book was good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tops in My Mind!, May 30, 2010
This review is from: Marine Sniper: 93 Confirmed Kills (Paperback)
For you history buffs... for you war buffs.... for you war opponents... One Shot, One Kill gives you a true picture of the sniper on the battlefield. The sniper's purpose is nothing more than a big game hunter whose target is the big one. Henderson's report puts you there right in the cross hairs of a one man war team. Read it. Enjoy it. Oh, and buy it first...

This true story held me spellbound. Make sure to look up Carlos Hathcock online after to see what happened to him after he served.
