Marine Scout Snipers

This entry into the Special Ops II series focuses on “some of the most accurate shooters in the world.” Making no bones about the taking of lives, Rudolph goes into the training and responsibilities of being one of these elite gunmen, including measuring distance and wind speed, learning to stalk targets, and improvising “ghillie suits”—camouflage made out of plants and other material. Rudolph touches upon history, from the WWII birth of Scout Snipers to lessons learned in Vietnam, but bookends her story with current conflicts, profiling real-life soldiers whose amazing feats (like shooting an enemy 1,000 yards away) continue to prove their worth in an age of drones. Vivid action photos and a gritty layout help give a high-interest sheen to what, to some, will be need-to-know information.
