    By Charles Henderson. A true story about a vietnam sniper hero that had over 93 confirmed kills. The guys name is SGT. Hathcock. Reading it for the second time. Great read and I recomend it to those who are interested.

    I've read it. A great read for sure.

    Now I'll recommend one... Rice Paddy Grunt by John "MG" Brown.

    both non fiction, one about a ground soldier and one about a helo pilot.

    My time was served at sea, so don't mind my not knowing the correct terms for them...

    Rice Paddy Grunt is a factual, and sometimes brutal account of the author's tour of duty.

    Hathcock was used by CIA to get leaders of NVA.

    One Shot-One Kill was his orginal book.1974
