From the French sniper who shot Admiral Nelson at Trafalgar to the devastating assassination of John F. Kennedy, snipers have played a crucial—and shadowy—role in history. Now, two defense experts shed light on the mystery surrounding these deadly gunmen, whether they be lone agents or members of strategic military forces. Packed with facts and details, Snipers paints a vivid picture of the men behind the crosshairs—both good and evil—their motives, their psychology, their times, the weapons they used, and the scenarios in which they were placed. With contributions from Frederick Forsyth (Day of the Jackal), David L. Robbins (War of the Rats), and Charles Morse (investigating officer of the Washington Sniper case), this is fascinating reading for military, history, and crime buffs.
