If you want to get an idea of what a snipers life was like in VietNam, you definitely need to read this book.
Marine Sniper: 93 Confirmed Kills was skillfully written by Charles Henderson.
From the author's description of the kills you can actually place yourself right there alongside the sniper,
experiencing every emotion that the sniper felt. He had a wonderful wife who loved him and tolerated his love for the Corp.
You will be able to feel the pain and anguish Carlos felt when he tried to adjust to civilian life. Then he reenlisted
and went back to Nam.
I'm not going to spoil any more of the story.
I'm a former Marine and after reading this book I wondered why He was never recommended for the Medal of Honor.
His heroics were unparalleled. His life was ended by MS. How sad it was.
as daring. His enemies, the Vietnamese nicknamed him Long Tra'ng or white feather. He was one of the first snipers to use the 50 caliber as a sniper weapon. He was from
the state of Arkansas. He first came into prominence by winning the Wimbledon Cup of shooting. At an event held August 25,1965 at Camp Perry, Ohio he was the winning shooter.He promptly joined the Marine Corps and became a sniper. This began a series of fantastic shooting events that literally established him as a legend.His first
shooting success was at Elephant Valley. Hathcock and another sniper pinned 100 Viet Cong soldiers down for 5 days. This saved the lives of many American soldiers. There
was another evil force that Hathcock also dealt with. This was a Vietnamese female officer who was known as the Apache. This war one of the most sadistic and vicious
individuals that America had to deal with in the Vietnamese War. She had skinned one American soldier alive. Another had a basket tied on his head and had a rat sewed up
in the basket. The Apache also castrated an American soldier who bled to death. Hathcock shot her dead center and killed her.Her days of torturing American soldiers were
ended. On another project called Rio Blanco Hathcock was given the assignment of killing a master interrogator. He was a Frenchman named Jacques. Hathcock intercepted him on the way to interrogate two American airmen.There was also a talented Vietnamese sniper who was having incredible luck killing Americans. Hathcock finally caught up with
him and killed him. Hathcock was given an assignment to kill a Vietnamese general. This general was well guarded and nearly impossible to reach. Through shrewd planning
Hathcock finally killed him. Hathcock became such a terror that the Viet Cong finally put a bounty on his head of $10,000. Hathcock upon retirement had 93 kills. That record was not surpassed until Chris Kyle. He finally got out of the field of combat after being stricken with multiple sclorosis. This was an outstanding book about an
outstanding Marine. Be sure to read this book.
