Please note that this product is not available for purchase from Osprey Publishing websites.


Special Forces Sniper Skills is a hard-hitting account of the soldiers, weapons and techniques used to coldly eliminate high value targets on the battlefield.

Though many books have become best-sellers through telling one side of the story – a sniper's experiences, a training manual or a weapons catalogue – none before have combined the whole spectrum of a sniper's life and skills into one gripping book. This book examines the role of the sniper, and the unique skills employed, when serving as part of a Special Forces unit including the British SAS, the US Navy Seals and the Russian Spetznaz.

The book is illustrated with photographs of every aspect of the sniper's trade and stories from the real-life experiences of the author's comrades: soldiers who have served in almost every overt and covert conflict since World War II.
