Summary
They have one mission--and they accomplish it with one bullet. In Operation Iraqi Freedom, there is a special breed of hunter for whom the prey is the enemy--and every day is hunting season. This soldier is a HOG--a Hunter of Gunmen. These stories give firsthand accounts of just how dangerous Iraq can be, the experience of these young men, and the consequences involved with being on a Marine Scout/Sniper team that few can make, and possessing the precision that no others can master. From sniping on a rooftop in Baghdad to unknowingly being surrounded in a palm grove in the city of Hit, these stories will transport the reader right into the heat of the desert war, where one shot can make all the difference.--From publisher description. "Anyone doubting the nature of America's mission in Iraq need look no further than these grim accounts."--Kirkus Reviews
