    " I will perhaps catch some flak for this, but I have to disagree with the majority of the reviews. While the story of Carlos Hathcock is amazing beyond belief, I felt let down by the narrative of Charles Henderson. There is one aspect of this book that is especially bothering to me; I would imagine that the events taking place in Vietnam must have been immensly intense and frightening. For example, mental pressure felt by Hathcock as he 'played hide and seek' with Vietnamese snipers must have been paralyzing. But nowhere in the book were those feelings properly addressed or transferred to the reader. I don't know, maybe the problem was with the reader of the book (I've listened to this book in Audible version) that failed, but the intensity of the events described in 'Marine Sniper' somehow went straight past me. Still, it's a 'must read' book for people who like to read about amazing lifes, Vietnam War buffs and people who have special interest in craft of sniping. "

    " the quintessential Vietnam biography "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cody Null | 1/27/2014

    " i think this is a good book beacause it constantly has something going on and it is something i understand it is mainly about a man with a world record of 93!!! confirmed kills and his journy to there confirmed kills is when you know they are dead done by seeing the body fall and not move not a confirmed kill if he is injured and runs away and dies beacause you wouldnt know. "

    " A great premise - the legendary Vietnam War sniper Carlos Hatchcock. The writing is also brilliant because it reads like a movie script. However overall it is just an OK read. Only for real military buffs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug | 1/12/2014

    " This is one of the greatest Viet-Nam War books. It portrays the difficult terrain and situations our soldiers found themselves in. It shows how we forget to keep our swords sharp between wars and shows how unprepared we were to fight that type of war. Gunny Hathcock found how to fight an unconvetional was against an unconventional enemy. Wherever the Gunny was the US was winning! "

    " Obviously written and edited by the military, but an amazing story of a guy with incredible focus and bravery. If this guy played SOCOM on the PlayStation, he would get MVP every round. "

    " The biography of a legendary Marine sniper. It mentions the training methods and tactics. He provided the model for the statement "One shot, one kill." "

    " One of the better Vietnam era war biographies; fast moving and well written. Carlos Hathcock was an amazing Marine sniper and one can only imagine how prolific he would have been in Iraq or Afghanistan. Highly recommended book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack | 6/2/2011

    " Couldn't put this down. Not just a macho shoot and kill book but a sensitive, insighteful look into the life of an incredible invidual. His bravery and bottomless strength was a mindblower for me. "
