Format: Mass Market Paperback
The author's association with another book entitled "Taking Fire: the True Story of a Decorated Chopper Pilot" makes the information in this book highly suspect. When I confronted this author with specific concerns about "facts" in his other book, his response was, "You don't know what the hell you're talking about." But indeed I do: I had the singular misfortune of flying with his co-author for an entire year and most of the stories they concocted simply did not happen. On the whole, the Viet Nam-related material contained in "Taking Fire" goes far beyond "artistic license" to the point of gross misrepresentation and self-aggrandizement at the expense of historical accuracy. I have no reason to believe that he did not do the same thing in this book. I fear that the author is purely into writing for the money and is re-creating history as he sees fit to make his books more marketable. For those of us who have experienced war up close and personal, his books are joke.

The art of sniping from the American Revolution to Korea then to Vietnam. The best of the best are portrayed in this easy to read novel. For all of those who have read Marine Sniper this is a must read. Snipers from Carlos Hathcock to Jim Land tell their story in this fast paced book. It is very informative and explains each situation and the art of sniping. It gets my seal of approval, and is a must read.

One shot one kill is a terrific book for those who enjoy reading the experiences of snipers from all parts of history.It gives amazing accounts from World War II and the Vietnam War among others.It's an especially good book because the authors have a huge base of knowledge on the subject and have an effective way of explaining the circumstances in which the snipers in this book preformed their duties.Again a terrific book that will make one appreciate the art of sniping.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this one. The authors have given us a good overview of this history of the sniper in war. If of course would be a mistake to to place this book with some of the other somewhat dry accounts of military history. This is a very readable book, lots of action, lots of insight yet sneeks in some very nice historical facts. It makes history more alive. It is also the story of some very brave and remarkable men. Recommend this for a nice fast read that is very much a page turner.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Tiger Kitty on January 31, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
One Shot - One Kill talks about the history and development of the sniper division. Not that long ago, snipers were looked down upon before as being cowards because they hid. Yet over time people began to realize how desperately snipers were needed. So instead of like before just taking men who scored well on marksmanship men are now being trained in the art of sniping. The book tells the stories of some of the things that happened to veteran snipers. It gives you in depths look at the mind and happenings of a sniper.

I believe this was an all around good book, and highly recommend it to fellow readers of historical and military books. I recommend this book because when the men are telling there stories I almost feel as if I am there and am living it myself. It is well written and an easy read.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was a military sniper during my active service and I am very glad to come across this book which is nothing but very descriptive accounts of snipers.
This book throws at you the thoughts of a sniper without any exaggeration, it includes accounts of victory and also failures that snipers encountered, nothing is fabricated. After reading the contents of this book, you will appreciate the mental & emotional stress that snipers have to go through. No every one has the strength to squeeze the trigger. Snipers are really a special breed.

An open letter to Chuck Sasser:
This is truely an outstanding work of art. As one who has spent hours inside of himself, setting up the shot and waiting for the shot, this book is a unique look at the world from the sniper's eyes looking out. It made me smell the dampness, feel the insects crawling and biting, remember the cramped muscles from hours of laying in one position, and remember the last thing you ever see of the target - his eyes. A true work of art by a master story teller.

Both awesome and tragic. As close as you can come to crawling on your stomach for hours in the hot sun, tasting the grass, feeling the bites of ants while experiencing the thrill of hunting the enemy. You'll never regret reading this book.
