    Description

    There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.

    history at its best

    this is a must hear. i have had co workers start to listen and get hooked and they took my work truck and drove slow just to hear it. i guess what i like the most is to me this is a true american hero. john wayne in real life. not some dreamed up hollywood movie. i wish it could be heard in schools so our kids could understand what a real good guy is. buy it you wont be sorry. narrator is good. makes you think there is more than one person telling the story.like watching tv but the picture is in your head

    Carlos Hathcock is THE man!

    Where does Marine Sniper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 3 and I have listened to way too many audio books.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Like best? I suppose the entire book was what I liked best.

    What about Kevin Foley’s performance did you like?

    I wish K Foley would perform ALL audio books from this day forward. This guy is by far the best narrator (or whatever you call these people) I have ever heard. He knows when and where to pause, change tempo, increase tone, etc. yes the book is awesome and combined with this guys delivery, wow!

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Forced retirement, WTF?

    Any additional comments?

    Do not hesitate, not for a second, download this book RIGHT NOW!

    This guy was amazing!

    So I was really looking for a book that gave me a feel for what snipers go through, and did it. I was mostly looking for the action side of it but this book goes into the biography and background of Hathcock also which at first I wasn't interested in, but later enjoyed. This book is written as more of a story with dialogue, rather than an after-action interview. Definitely an amazing story!

    A must listen, A+

    I was totally blown away by the story of Gunny Hathcock. The book completely rounds out his life. I felt as though I knew Carlos after listening to it. It was great to take on trips. I know of 5-6 people who have borrowed my iPod to listen to his story. I had not understood the sniper mentality until I started listening to this book and it really taught me a few things. A++

    Starts slow and then picks up and is very good

    The true story of Carlos Hathcock, a Marine sniper in Vietnam with probably over 300 kills. The author does embellish some. As an example, he puts dialogue in the North Vietnamese mouths and minds which detracts from the authenticity of the story. The story of Hathcock hunting the enemy female sniper "Apache," known for torturing her captives by cutting off their eyelids and other appendages is highlighted, along with Carlos' battles with snipers who were sent to kill him. At one time the North Vietnamese had a wanted dead or alive poster of him paying substantial money for his death. Much of this story reminded me of the film "Enemy at the Gates," another story about snipers hunting each other. As of this date Youtube has a decent interview with Hathcock and it's worth searching for if you enjoy the book. I would recommend this title along with two other recent audio war books: "House to House" by David Bellavia and "War" by Sebastian Junger.

    A must read for any Marine!

    For the Marine, Carlos Hathcock is both an inspiration and a legend. While just a man, given a precision rifle he became a god with authority over any life found in his crosshairs. A master of bushcraft and terrain, his patients and unwavering fortitude supplemented by his dedication to the craft would allow him to creep up upon his enemy completely undetected and with a single retort of his rifle lay waste to the enemy before him. His love of the Marine corps and especially that of his fellow Marines shored up his courage and pushed him forward to perform his task and by doing so potentially save some of the Marines he so loved and cherished as brothers.
