With more than sixty confirmed kills, Gunnery Sgt. Coughlin is the Marine Corps' top-ranked sniper. A divorced father of two who grew up in a wealthy Boston suburb, he had never even held a gun when he joined the Marines, but would spend the next twenty years behind the scope of a long-range precision rifle. In that time he accumulated one of the most successful records in the Corps, ranging through many of the world's hotspots. Now he has written a highly personal story about his deadly craft, taking readers deep inside an invisible society. This is not a heroic battlefield memoir, but the careful study of an exceptional man who must keep his sanity while carrying forward one of the deadliest legacies in the U.S. military today.--From publisher description.
