This is the story of Nicholas Irving, and his journey from wayward Maryland kid to the 3rd Ranger Battalion’s deadliest Master Sniper. Irving delivers a gripping first-person account of his development as an expert assassin. Once deployed, his romanticised expectations of life at war are torn apart. Enduring extreme physical and mental conditions, he learns the true meaning of discipline and focus. This book dramatically lays bare the experiences of the sniper.
