Extremely thoroughly researched, clearly a labor of love. I would have preferred more focus on the skills and psychology of the snipers whose stories are told and not so much microscopic detail about their rifles, sights, and other equipment, but still found this an interesting read - I'd recommend this to anyone with a strong interest in either military history or marksmanship.
