Format: Paperback
This book is an exceptionally well-done guide to Marine Scout-Snipers in Vietnam. Unlike others who merely repeat a story or two that they've heard, Mr. Senich examines the tactical and technical side of sniping and provides for the reader a look at both the evolution of the sniper's weapon and the revolution in his employment. His research into patents, optics, rifles and sniper employment is unparalled and far superior to the mishmash of gimmicky sniper guides you find written by snakeoil salesmen these days. If you want to know about Sniping, buy this book.

Format: Paperback
As one who attended the Marine Corps Scout Sniper School in 1966, I was pleased to find that this book was not just some "feel good" propaganda. There was the actual story, warts and all, about the rocky beginnings of the program and the evolution from PX rifles to the rifles of today.
This book is loaded with readable tecnical information about both the eqipment and the Marines pulling the trigger.

Format: Paperback
before finding these books by Peter R Senich i've shearched for years on the internet and spent hours at bookstores trying to find any information on the usmc sniper rifles of the vietnam era and other eras. and they were big wastes of time. very little to no info is out there; but these books hold more info on the subject of sniping (and equipment) in our military's history than you can find in years of serching on your own.

thanks Peter R Senich!

A great book for those interested in the Vietnam Sniper program.Lots of interesting reading & info. Many times I have mentioned the fact that the Winchester Model 70 30:06 was used as a Sniper rifle early in the Vietnam conflict & many times I was looked upon with unbelieving eyes from more than one ex-service man that had served. But here's the facts & as Paul Harvey used to say: "The rest of the story" ! Also included of course is the Remington Model 700 in 7.62 MM along with notes on M14's
& others. The acknowledgement page thanking individuals for info, photos & access to their collections reads like a who's who in the real world of the actual snipers of this era & in some cases well known men such as Chuck Mawhinney , Carlos Hathcock , John Plaster & many , many more. Also Peter has a chapter on "Those Damn Viet Cong" & their weapons. Lots of fact & history on the USMC Scout - Snipers in Vietnam. An interesting read for those with an interest in this field of warfare. THANKS Peter & all contributors - FIVE STARS.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in history, sniping, and the Vietnam war. Follows the history of the Development of the M 40 sniper rifle to M 40-A1 sniper rifle and the scopes involved. Gives the true accounting of the use and training of Marine snipers.
