These marksmen share details of their individual cases that you won't see on the news. They give details on weather conditions, physical strain from maintaining uncomfortable positions for extended periods of time, mental affects of the job, and the rifles used.
Some of the actions of the eventual targets were bizarre- from a man that stalked and shot a police officer to a mentally deranged suspect that was released from an institution too early.
Carlos Hathcock differentiated between the military sniper and the police sniper. The circumstances and the target area (also called the "no reflex zone"). Police snipers often have less leeway considering that there are usually brother officers or hostages in imminent danger.
The Preface accurately sums up the book- "On the following pages are the stories of many of the dedicated law enforcement officers who have served as police marksmen."
These experiences make for some gripping stories. This is a very fast-paced book and I recommend it.
