The book happens to throw a lot of facts at readers ;however does not give them context in place of the conflict, if you do not have extensive knowledge of Vietnam not much will be gained from reading the book.
It fills a niche role of information, however does not go into the politics or reasons of the war. A very enjoyable but erudite little book about Snipers in the VietNam War and Era, but not what it may appear. Coming as it does in the same format as many “boys own” style tales of derring-do adventure-style books about the Campaign, the actual content, a sober academic look at the process of developing a sniper program, may disappoint some.
But the true Military Enthusiast will still find a treasure trove.
