Description

'A rare beast in this genre, this is an honest, insider's account of the dark arts of sniping and special forces' - Herald Sun

In SAS Sniper, Rob Maylor takes us inside the closed world of the Australian Special Forces - it's tough to get in, but the fighting that follows is even tougher...

Royal Marine...SAS marksman...Elite soldier...

Rob Maylor has seen action in the world's most dangerous combat zones. From East Timor and Iraq to Afghanistan, he has been places where no-one else wants to go.

He was there when a Black Hawk helicopter crashed, drowning two of his mates. He was there at Australia's biggest battle in Afghanistan when a Taliban ambush left him shockingly wounded.

He has walked for hours, sometimes days, through hostile country until he has found the right position, sometimes more than a kilometre away from this target, then when the moment is right he aims, and with absolute precision, puts the bullet just where it is going to have the most effect...

This is a gritty, no-holds-barred behind-the-scenes look at life on the front line from an elite SAS sniper.

    I enjoyed this book. Plenty of detail and action I especially liked the Afghanistan section which for most people today is more topical.
