Coming as it does in the same format as many "boys own" style tales of derring-do adventure-style books about the Campaign, the actual content, a sober academic look at the process of developing a sniper program, may disappoint some.

Inside the Crosshairs: Snipers in Vietnam

There have been sharpshooters and snipers ever since the advent of firearms. In the military in Vietnam, it took some hours of special training to produce a sniper. It took less than a second for him to earn his pay. Novels and movies have portrayed snipers as heartless killers, but they were just highly skilled soldiers and Marines, trained for a specific job. They included men like Ed Eaton, who recorded most of his kills beyond meters, including one from a moving helicopter at night. Marine Sergeant Charles Mawhinney recorded probables and confirmed kills—the equivalent of three NVA companies. With the advent of more automatic weapons, that number doubled to 50, rounds per kill in Korea.
