[Read by Dick Hill]
This is not a heroic battlefield memoir but the careful study of an exceptional man who must keep his sanity while carrying forward one of the deadliest legacies in the US military today. -- With more than sixty confirmed kills, Gunnery Sergeant Jack Coughlin is the Marine Corps' top-ranked sniper, the man who personally brings America's military muscle to the enemy's front door. Shooter is his harrowing first-person account of a sniper's life on and off the modern battlefield.
At the age of nineteen, Coughlin joined the Marines and spent the next twenty years behind the scope of a long-range precision rifle as a sniper. In that time, he accumulated one of the most successful sniper records in the Corps, ranging through many of the world's hot spots. During Operation Iraqi Freedom alone, he recorded at least thirty-six kills, thirteen of them in a single twenty-four-hour period. -- Now Coughlin has written a highly personal story about his deadly craft, taking listeners deep inside an invisible society that is off-limits to outsiders.
INTO THE CROSSHAIRS
Marine Sniper Sgt. Jack Coughlin carried his specially designed bolt action rifle--and its nearly magical scope--into a landscape of sandstorms, firefights, and chaos during Operation Iraqi Freedom. As marines charged through the desert and leapfrogged through bizarre, treacherous urban battlefields, Coughlin and his sniper teammate did their job and did it well: One by one, they spotted their targets--up to a half a mile away. And one by one their targets died. Coughlin has more than 60 confirmed kills.
INTO THE ACTION
In this extraordinary account from battlefield Iraq, Coughlin tells the story of his own unique war, from stealthy, slowly-unfolding long range kills to unplanned firefights--and how one sniper team adapted and thrived in a battle zone unlike any they faced before?
INTO THE HEART AND MIND OF A WARRIOR
With vivid portraits of Coughlin's fellow marines and the battles they fought from Al Kut to Baghdad center, SHOOTER takes readers to the frontlines of the war in Iraq and gives a brutally honest account of a man trained to hunt humans, who had the courage to do his deadly job--and live with it once the shooting stopped.
"One of the best snipers in the Marine Corps, perhaps the very best. When I asked one of his commanders about his skills, the commander smiled and said, "I'm just glad he's on our side.'"
--Peter Maas, war-correspondent and bestselling author of Love Thy Neighbor
