Product Overview

From the emergence of the first 'sharpshooters' in the 1600s to the record-breaking precision of military snipers operating in Afghanistan, this book examines the experiences, tactics and equipment of military marksmen through the ages. The first widespread use of dedicated 'sharpshooters' came during the American Civil War, and since then their deadly presence has haunted combat zones all over the world - from the trenches of World War I to the blighted Eastern Front of World War 2, and from Vietnam to the Gulf. Illustrated throughout with color and black and white photographs, this is a chronological study of snipers and sharpshooters, detailing their evolution, training, weaponry and actions.
