    One thought on “Sniper: American Single-Shot Warriors in Iraq and Afghanistan”

    1. Book consisting mainly of stories and interviews with snipers in Afghanistan and Iraq. Doesn’t go into much detail about history but instead focuses on the changing role of snipers, and how they’ve had to adapt, for example, to primarily urban environments in Iraq. The book contains a lot of mini interviews and Q&A with actual snipers, but overall the book falls short. The whole thing seems discombobulated and more like a bunch of random short stories that were cobbled together into a bo [...]

    2. The book is many different stories. Short and long. The stories are told from many different snipers. They're also told from the snipers spotter so you get a different perspective other than just the snipers. I cant give a full summary of the book because its a lot of different stories but I found them very well told stories.I liked the book for a couple good reasons. One reason is that it is not one long dragged out story. It is multiple stories from multiple snipers which keeps me interested. [...]

    3. This book was a disappointment, because the stories are bland. Sniper stories should not be bland. They should be incredible.If snipers do not have good stories, then who does? Who?I got so bored towards the end of the book, that I began to insert the cast of Facts of Life into the books just to make it interesting. I would replace Taliban Insurgent with Tootie. I would replace Iraqi solider with Mrs. Garrett.

    4. I love reading about snipers but this book didn't measure up to the level of most other books I've read on the topic. It's a bunch of stories that tended to be very similar so it got repetitive. The good thing is that it's only 200 pages.

    5. I did not find this book as interesting a read as I had hoped, but it was a good book nevertheless. If interested in what it was like for snipers in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as what a army snipers role is in battle zones then this book is for you

    6. I guess I like the fictional stories better than the true descriptions of what snipers do and have done. That's OK.
