Description

Groundbreaking, thrilling and revealing, The Reaper is the astonishing memoir of Special Operations Direct Action Sniper Nicholas Irving, the 3rd Ranger Battalion's deadliest sniper with 33 confirmed kills, though his remarkable career total, including probables, is unknown. In the best-selling tradition of American Sniper and Shooter, Irving shares the true story of his extraordinary career, including his deployment to Afghanistan in the summer of 2009, when he set another record, this time for enemy kills on a single deployment. His teammates and chain of command labeled him "The Reaper," and his actions on the battlefield became the stuff of legend, culminating in an extraordinary face-off against an enemy sniper known simply as The Chechnian. Irving's astonishing first-person account of his development into an expert assassin offers a fascinating and extremely rare view of special operations combat missions through the eyes of a Ranger sniper during the Global War on Terrorism. From the brotherhood and sacrifice of teammates in battle to the cold reality of taking a life to protect another, no other audiobook dives so deeply inside the life of a sniper on point.

Great story

This is a very interesting description of modern combat and how our Rangers operate. Nicholas is a very brave Ranger and this shows how our Rangers take care of their own and risk their lives for their brothers. I'm glad we have men like Nicolas. My son is an officer in the Rangers and I'm very happy he has men around him like this.

Guts in War, Brains over guts

Being a prior sniper this is a fantastic story that includes all of the mental aspects of the job. I enjoyed the decision making process illustrated in the book. Glad he made it out, and glad he contributes like he does as a civilian.

Vivid and Sincere Military Spirit

Would you consider the audio edition of The Reaper to be better than the print version?

Have only listen to the audiobook. But I would have to assume that if the written copy is like the audiobook than its good to go.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Reaper?

The part were Mike falls into that underground cave which was some 75 to 80 feet below the surface and his only injury was a broken Tibia.

What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeff brings this story to life through his own spirit and annunciation of the outstanding story which Nick lived while he went through his many tours of duty. He brings the story full circle in a very unique way which brings authenticity and a true military demeanor through its chapters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Afghanistan the land of the Reaper and the U.S. Rangers.

Any additional comments?

Want to take the time to extent a sincere THANK YOU to Nicholas Irving for his selfless service to God and Country during his years as a Ranger Sniper. May God continue to bless him and his entire family always. Hooah...!SGT Gonzalez, U.S. Army 910625-000505.

Disjointed and tough to follow

Irving is a great man but whoever edited this story could have helped structure the flow and dialogue to be more engaging. It seemed like they let him just talk into a dictation machine and then they simply spell checked it.

Intense and full of action

This book is full of action and intense moments that were unbelievable. True act of patriotism, and heroism. Nicholas Irving describes his action as if the action is never stopping. One part that I really liked about this book is suspense it builds up to the action and the combat. I would recommend this to anyone who loves autobiographies. And like to hear war stories.

Demolition Ranch made me listen to this book!

I was watching Demolition Ranch when he had Nicholas Irving on and they were talking about his book, The Reaper. I have listened to American Sniper, The Lone Survivor, and Can't Hurt Me, all by Navy Seals in Iraq and Afghanistan, this was the first book by an Army Ranger I've listened to. All 4 books are similar in some aspects and all are very different in the stories they tell. I loved the story telling in this book, I loved how he brought the nuances of long range shooting into the story like measuring the height of a target by using the mil dots in his reticle or holding .5 mil for movement of the target. For me, that stuff made the story come to life and I could actually see what he was describing as if I were looking through my own scope.

Roger that

Great story. Irv keeps it real. I especially enjoyed how he wove in stories of Jessica, growing up and training. The training stories were great and made me smile as some reminded me of my own back in the 1980s. Sounds like he needs to hang on to Jessica, she's a keeper

Great insights

Found the book by demolition ranch. The story is well told, interesting and let’s you think about a lot of topics, that usually are mystified and glorified. This book is honest, and on point.
