The exercises in this book—from the U.S. Marines and U.S. Army, U.S. Navy SEALs, Spanish Foreign Legion, Swedish Marines, Gunsite, Snipercraft, and many other top sniping programs—cover the entire spectrum of the professional sniper's skill set, including: close-range and known-distance shooting—testing cold-bore zeros, target identification, knowing your limits . . . long-range shooting—range estimation, ballistics and wind reading, hard-target interdiction . . . complex and skills-oriented exercises—accuracy under stress, simultaneous engagements, shooting through glass, angle shooting, shooting through loopholes . . . nonshooting requirements—communications, camouflage and observation, land navigation, tactical medicine, survival and tracking . . . The author wraps up with his recommendations for sniper competitions, schools, instructors, and equipment.

Special Forces Sniper Skills is a hard hitting account of the men, weapons and techniques used to coldly eliminate high value targets on the battlefield. Though many books have become best-sellers through telling one side of the story – a sniper's experiences, a training manual or a weapons catalogue – none before have combined the whole spectrum of a sniper's life and skills into one gripping book. This book examines the role of the sniper, and the unique skills employed, when serving as part of a Special Forces unit including the British SAS, the US Navy Seals and the Russian Spetznaz. The book is illustrated with photographs of every aspect of the sniper's trade and stories from the real-life experiences of the author's comrades: men who have served in almost every overt and covert conflict since World War II.

"This manual is a necessity for any unit attempting to combat piracy or undertake any maritime operation." –Chief Chris Kyle, former Navy SEAL sniper/instructor "I strongly recommend adding this book to your training resources." –Sgt. Major Mark Spicer, retired British Army sniper instructor. For the professional sniper, engaging a target on the high seas is one of the most challenging assignments of all. Erratic movement introduced by waves, vessel speeds, and engine vibrations; short, sudden windows of opportunity; and a host of unique environmental factors make the shot that much more demanding for even experienced marksmen. Now, master sniper Fredrik Jonsson has written what is destined to become the classic manual on precision fire from seaborne platforms. Jonsson combines his vast experience in sniping deployment and instruction, specialized operations in troubled waters around the world, and competitive shooting to instruct dozens of specialized skills, including: timing shots for wave harmonics firing from one moving vessel at targets on another moving vessel firing through shipboard glass determining range and reading the wind in the tricky ocean arena establishing a suitable shooting platform on a vessel at speed conducting sniper-specific training at sea maintaining weapons and optics in the harsh saltwater environment The maritime sniper plays a vital role in combating piracy, providing cover for vessel- and GOPLAT-boarding teams, protecting high-value vessels, and many other missions. To hope that the sea will be calm the day you will have to take that crucial shot is simply not an option. Master the skills of seaborne sniping with Maritime Sniper Manual, called by John Plaster, author of The Ultimate Sniper, the "best thing out there on this subject."

This is the companion photo history to SOG: The Secret Wars of American's Commandos in Vietnam. In 1972 the U.S. military took steps to ensure that such a book could never be printed by destroying all the known photos that existed of the top-secret Studies and Observations Group. But unknown to those in charge, SOG veterans brought back with them hundreds of photographs of SOG in action and kept them secret for more than three decades. More than 700 irreplaceable photos bring to life the stories of SOG legends Larry Thorne, Bob Howard, Dick Meadows, George Sisler, "Q" and others, and documents what really happened deep inside enemy territory: Operation Tailwind, the Son Tay raid, SOG's defense of Khe Sanh, Hatchet Force operations, Bright Light rescues, HALO insertions, string extractions, SOG's darkest programs and much more.
