Review

More than a manual, [Navy SEAL Sniper] is a look at all aspects of the deadliest marksmen on the battlefield, and it provides useful information for anyone looking to improve their long-range shooting. It is indeed a complete practical guide on the subject.

About the Author

Glen Doherty (1970–2012) was a combat-decorated SEAL who served in the U.S. Navy for nine years. He worked extensively as an independent security specialist throughout some of the most dangerous places on the planet, all in support of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Glen was KIA in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, when his team came to the rescue of the U.S. Ambassador and State Department personnel after their safe house was attacked by an overwhelming force and under intense fire. Glen believed in working hard and playing harder; before giving up his life, he was frequently found skiing in Utah or surfing at his home break in Encinitas, California.

Brandon Webb is a former combat decorated U.S. Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer. He served combat tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. His last tour of duty was as the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Course Manager, the same course that graduated Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle, where he graduated over three hundred SEAL sniper students. Glen and Brandon served together at SEAL Team 3 and trained together in the SEAL sniper program, where they became lifelong friends. Brandon is author of the New York Times bestseller The Red Circle. He lives in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where he runs SOFREP.com and continues to write.

SEAL Team 3 Chief Chris Kyle (1974–2013), author of the New York Times bestseller American Sniper, served four combat tours in Iraq and elsewhere. For his bravery in battle, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. Following his combat deployments, he became chief instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter-Sniper teams, and he authored the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Doctrine, the first Navy SEAL sniper manual. A native Texan, he devoted much of his spare time to helping disabled veterans. Chief Kyle is survived by his wife and their two children.

"By Navy SEAL Snipers Glen Doherty
and Brandon Webb"
"Foreward by Navy SEAL Chris Kyle"

I should leave the review right there.
That's more than enough.

But for anyone new to these names,
Glen Doherty fell during actions that define "Hero". He made some of the most famous shots in history, though his name was not uttered in the media.

Webb went from SEAL Sniper, to rebuilding the storied Navy SEALs Sniper School.

Chris Kyle needs no introduction.

I know these three Tier One Operators would never leak secrets that could endanger fellow Operators. But the tactical details, photos, illustrations, and explanations in this volume
are full bore.
I have to think this will become the unofficial
'Sniper's Bible'.
I've just purchased more copies to give as gifts.
You've got the best in the world explaining the science and art in fresh, modern language, making the technical easy to read.
It's a privilege to own and read this.

For many who read this, you are simply standing on the outside looking in and hopeful that there is a scrap or tidbit of information that will take you from observer to part of the inner circle. Being involved in Special Operations for well over two decades, I can tell you that no book can fulfill that fantasy for you, but this book comes pretty damn close. It is well written and fluid, which helps keep you engaged and more importantly provides you with the opportunity peek inside a world that you probably would never have the chance to ever view.

Brandon is without a doubt one of the most talented and gifted Special Operators in the U.S and Glen is one of the scariest individuals that has graced this planet. Together they provide you, my neophyte friend, with a front row seat to their world. It is as if you have been invited to partake in a private training class, one-on-one, with these two men. They are patient, thoughtful and determined to help you improve not only your ability to put rounds on target - but hopefully become a better person in the process by understanding that with skills come responsibility.

I am not sure what else to write as I typically don't waste my time writing reviews, but felt that this book deserved a quick note for those on the fence. If you are on the fence about buying this book, here is what I would tell you. Either your in the game or on the sideline. Chances are most of your life you have been on the sideline. So, why not do something different, get a copy of this book, study it, devour it and get into the game - it really is the definitive work on this topic in my opinion.

Lastly, one thing about this book that for me is a personally moving.

First and foremost let me state it is a priviledge to review such an awesome work penned by men who have put their lives on the line for our freedoms.
Two of the three men on the cover have been called home for other good works but they passed as true heroes..helping their fellow men in need.
Glen Doherty ran to the sound of violence in the finest tradition of men since the dawn of time on 9/11/2012. With time his heroism will be fully recognized and the nations highest honors will be bestowed on this man. His writing held within this work will be the trusted truth cherished by firearms enthusiasts and men of honor for eternity.
Chris Kyle, arguably one of the most beloved SEALs in history passed while helping a troubled fellow veteran - his foreward is fitting and a reminder to all of us that a lighted torch must be carried by all.
And as to Chief Brandon Webb - it is sometimes harder for those left behind to carry forward but it is vital that those who remain with us, before they are called home, must carry on the good works. Now for content.
The writing style is nice easy prose and does not get get bogged down in minutia and technical jargon. The work takes us through the history of sniping in a summary form with highlights to carry the day - who can't be in awe of a simple Finnish man defending his country as only he can do best.
The details to look for on any great shoointg piece are straightforward - a simple bill to see if your barrel is free of the fore end of the stock is a prime example of great, easy to understand writing. Even a novice can understand all the details as we work through. I will leave it to the reader to explore deeper - it is all there, in simple writing.

The book starts out with some history which was interesting but seemed to be like a wikipedia article. Not anything that the author was a particular expert on so it was a little thin. I expected more technical information on long range shooting. Other than assuring the reader that it can be done, there was no real how it is done. In that sense it did not live up to the hype on the jacket. The part that stands out is the discussion on the technology of the modern platforms with optics and rounds and such. If you are just into the glamor of the SEALs and want to throw some money at one of them, then buy it. I would say that all the information is available somewhere else in greater detail with the exception of the stories told first hand about what was done in the SEAL teams. I have always liked military history and have enjoyed reading the recent spate of supposedly non fiction coming from the Special Forces guys since that seems to be the way the US is fighting its battles and seems to mark a significant shift in war fighting. That said, this book is probably not the best source for that information. Doherty's Red Circle is definitely better. Adding the lack of the more technical information on long range shooting and the fact that the stories of the SEAL teams' exploits are better told in other books, I just can't give this more than 3 stars.
