This book is an excellent look into his life and into the formation of the Sniper as a Marine and later, military wide fixture. It was written using official Marine Corp records and personal recollections of participants. It is an outstanding read and offers a look into the life of an incredible man. Gunny Hathcock was the epitome of a Marine. He was also a warrior’s warrior. The tales told in this book may seem to be unbelievable, but all that I have read about him corroborates with this book.
I was impressed with the writing and the overall story. While being a true story, it was not bland at all. It really put you into the moment.
