Description

The sniper is a lone hunter: to become a special forces sniper requires supreme concentration and extreme self-discipline. SAS and Elite Forces Guide: Sniper examines what it takes to be a special forces elite sniper. It is as important to focus on mental discipline and physical fitness as it is to be able to shoot to Olympic levels of accuracy. You must become an expert in fieldcraft and stalking, and become familiar with nature and the weather.

The book describes the psychological makeup of a sniper, what training is required to become an expert marksman, and what weapons are used by special forces snipers today. Using 300 instructive artworks, SAS and Elite Forces: Sniper shows you how special forces units such as the SAS and Delta Force train their most elite soldiers.
