Book offers rare insight into professional snipers

When Matt Larsen brought me a copy of Sniper: American Single-Shot Warriors in Iraq and Afghanistan, I couldn’t wait to start reading it. Not only because I know the authors, Gina Cavallaro, a journalist who used to write for the Army Times and now writes for the Marine Corps Times, and Mr. Larsen, a retired Soldier and subject matter expert in combatives for The Bayonet, who served as a sniper in the Marines Corps and in the Ranger community and is a good storyteller, but because I would get an insider’s look at nine years of war from the battlefield.
