This one is hard to put down. Very realistic account of the stealth, patience, determination and marksmanship that it takes to be a Marine sniper. Lots of details on his various long range kills. Makes you feel like you are lying there in the shadows with him. I particularly liked the sniper-countersniper and stalking the NVA general chapters. Interesting was the difference in the attitudes of his fellow Marines from his first tour in Nam and his second. Hathcock was a real patriot and an excellent shot. Good book.
