Book Corner - Finished Reading

The Autobiography of the Top-Ranked Marine Sniper
By Jack Caughlin and Casey Kuhlman
Paperback 320 pages

I wish I can say I liked this book but it was rather disappointing, although it was interesting to a certain degree. The author brings us behind the scope and we learn what he see's and what he's thinking before he pulls the trigger.

What I didn't like was the remarks about a certain officer that he is blatantly disrespectful to and says the worst things about. True? Possibly. But he makes you want to believe that he pretty much turned the tide of the war. He didn't come off sounding like a good Marine to me.

All in all, not a good read, not recommended.
