"Most people think of snipers as shooters perched in urban hides, dealing out death unseen from a considerable distance. But this description barely scratches the surface. [The author explains that] special operations snipers are men with stacked skill sets who have the ability to turn the tide of battles, even when they aren't pulling the trigger ... These are the most experienced warriors on the battlefield, oftentimes the units' best assaulters with years of door-kicking under their belt. These are the men who run ops in small teams across borders, or dress like locals and pull off high-risk vehicle reconnaissance and singleton missions in non-permissive environments"--Dust jacket flap.
