Praise

"Martin Pegler’s Sniper: A History of the US Marksman provides an in-depth survey of sniper history, from early revolution times to sharpshooets in wars and in both global and world war scenarios. Chapters blend history with source material quotes for insights." -California Bookwatch (May 2009)

"Martin Pegler’s Sniper is an engrossing history of U.S. military snipers spanning more than two hundreds years. This careful assessment of the rationale behind and the motivation that drives snipers dispels the idea that snipers are no more than assassins. Instead Pegler shows how snipers are all about protection, and their main job is to protect their fellow squad members." -Dan Danbom, TimeOut for Entertainment (October/November 2007)

"… Sniper is more than a survey of modern military strategy; it covers military marksmanship history in America from Revolutionary War days to modern times, considering the first usage of marksmen and their strategic evolution. Chapters chronicle over 200 years of sniper history and developments, from training to weaponry, and make for an excellent addition to any military library." -The Bookwatch (October 2007)

"Overall, a fascinating look at a subject that is somewhat shrouded in mystery. It makes for a great read and is one that I believe you will thoroughly enjoy reading." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (March 2009)
