The explosive true story of Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legendary Marine sniper in the Vietnam War.

There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has only been one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock.

He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines--on their own ground. And each time, he emerged from the jungle having done his duty. His record is one of the finest in military history, with ninety-three confirmed kills.

This is the story of a simple man who endured incredible dangers and hardships for his country and his Corps. These are the missions that have made Carlos Hathcock a legend in the brotherhood of Marines. They are exciting, powerful, chilling--and all true.

One very interesting item about sniper extraordinarie, Carlos Hathcock, who I first heard of when I served in the military, was that he attempted numerous times to duplicate what Lee Oswald was alleged to have done with a Mannlicher Carcano rifle, but failed on each occasion - - thus once again disproving all those conspiracy theorists who support the atrocious and fraudulent Warren Commission. And Lee was no marksman, let alone any expert sniper, but was a former Russian linguist and CIA field agent. Oswald ONLY qualified as the lowest, a marksman, in his last year in the Corps, and was a non-qual the other years.
