The New York Times best selling book that takes you inside SEAL Team Six – the covert squad that killed Osama Bin Laden SEAL Team Six is a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes readers deep inside the world of Navy SEALS and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S)—the toughest and longest military training in the world. After graduating, Wasdin faced new challenges. First there was combat in Operation Desert Storm as a member of SEAL Team Two. Then the Green Course: the selection process to join the legendary SEAL Team Six, with a curriculum that included practiced land warfare to unarmed combat. More than learning how to pick a lock, they learned how to blow the door off its hinges. Finally as a member of SEAL Team Six he graduated from the most storied and challenging sniper program in the country: The Marine's Scout Sniper School. Eventually, of the 18 snipers in SEAL Team Six, Wasdin became the best—which meant one of the best snipers on the planet. Less than half a year after sniper school, he was fighting for his life. The mission: capture or kill Somalian warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. From rooftops, helicopters and alleys, Wasdin hunted Aidid and killed his men whenever possible. But everything went quickly to hell when his small band of soldiers found themselves fighting for their lives, cut off from help, and desperately trying to rescue downed comrades during a routine mission. The Battle of Mogadishu, as it become known, left 18 American soldiers dead and 73 wounded. Howard Wasdin had both of his legs nearly blown off while engaging the enemy. His dramatic combat tales combined with inside details of becoming one of the world's deadliest snipers make this one of the most explosive military memoirs in years.

They are the lone wolves of the battlefield. Tracking the enemy, lying in wait for the target to appear -- then they shoot to kill. Armed with an unerring eye, infinite patience and a mastery of camouflage, combat snipers stalk the enemy with only one goal... In World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Beirut, American snipers honed the art of delivering a single deadly shot from nowhere -- and devastating enemy morale. They met the enemy on his own turf, picking off officers, unwary soldiers, and even other snipers from extraordinary distances of up to 1 ½ miles. Now, these uncommon men tell their stories: of the emotions felt when a man's face came into their crosshairs and they pulled the trigger, of the nerve-wracking hours and days of waiting, motionless, for the enemy, of the primal savagery of a sniper duel. Often trained haphazardly in wartime, and forgotten in times of peace, combat snipers were officially recognized after the Vietnam War, when the Marine Corps became the first military branch to start a full-time sniper school. One Shot-One Kill is their powerful record of desperate trials and proud victories. A MAIN SELECTION OF THE MILITARY BOOK CLUB

* Instant NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestseller * * GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER for BEST DEBUT and BEST ROMANCE of 2019 * * BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR* for VOGUE, NPR, VANITY FAIR, and more! * What happens when America's First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales? When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse. Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic. "I took this with me wherever I went and stole every second I had to read! Absorbing, hilarious, tender, sexy—this book had everything I crave. I’m jealous of all the readers out there who still get to experience Red, White & Royal Blue for the first time!" - Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners "Red, White & Royal Blue is outrageously fun.

In his original version of Long-Range Precision Rifle, U.S. Army sniper and avid precision rifle and long-range rifle shooter, competitor, and enthusiast Anthony Cirincione II put extreme accuracy with a precision rifle within the reach of any shooter. His instruction was based on 26 months of combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan and his training of squad-designated marksmen for his battalion. His precision-shooting book proved to be an instant best-seller. In this expanded edition, Cirincione adds five new sections: "External Ballistic Truing." Although he briefly detailed the process of external ballistic truing in the first edition, given the level of importance to midrange and long-range target engagement, he believes that the process of truing deserves a detailed description. "Determining Fast and Correct Windage Adjustments or Holds."Cirincione covered the creation of a custom windage card for specific guns and pet loads in the first edition, but this added windage section shares his current process. The old way works fine, but his new method is faster and more precise, and doesn't require you to look at a card. As always, the process can be applied to any caliber you are using. "Midrange and Long-Range Target Engagement: Magneto Speed V3 Ballistic Chronograph vs. External Ballistic Truing." This section features a report Cirincione sent to the U.S. Army Sniper School outlining the testing of a barrel-mounted chronograph. The test pitted the device against his current method of external ballistic truing, given target engagements from 100 to 1,000 yards. It gives you a couple of different options to get on target at extended range. "How to Build a Switch-Barrel Rifle, and the Process of Swapping Barrels." As Cirincione has moved away from factory bolt-action rifles and into custom-built guns, he thought readers would appreciate information on how to build one. Not only that, but he also includes specific information on how to remove and add barrels of different calibers to that same stock and action. "Suppressed Subsonic Shooting." This section is about precision shot placement with subsonic ammo out to 400 yards. Long-Range Precision Rifle: Expanded Edition lays out the most up-to-date methods for getting the most out of whatever rifle you are using. After discussing rifle, ammunition and optic selection, Cirincione reveals his tried-and-true methods of gathering and recording data. He takes you step-by-step through the process of discovering how to make your rifle perform at its peak with every shot. You will also learn how to adjust for environmental factors and obstructions that lie between you and your target, and discover why handloading and building your own precision cartridges is an extra step well worth taking. "Anthony Cirincione was an amazing teacher while helping me get ready for sniper school. His knowledge and meticulous rifle setup techniques were instrumental to my success. udents and further help the sniper community."

The sniper is a battlefield threat second to none. Mastering the art of marksmanship is critical but is only part of what makes a Navy SEAL sniper. Snipers must be able to apply the craft in an urban environment or alone on a hostile mountain top with equal effectiveness. Today’s sniper must not just leverage technological advances but also have the foreknowledge to select the best rifle and gear for the mission. Increasingly, he must have the mental toughness to adapt to a constantly changing environment, gather intelligence, and truly act as a force multiplier. In this comprehensive look through the eyes of former Navy SEAL sniper instructor Brandon Webb and fellow Navy SEAL snipers Chris Kyle and Glen Doherty, the authors reveal not just the fundamentals of marksmanship but also the science of shooting, stalking, and camouflage and how technological advances have changed the training and increased the effectiveness of the modern sniper. Including maritime, helicopter, and urban sniper operations, this updated edition also goes into detail on the latest research, development, testing, and evaluation of weapons and optics. From the basics like compensating for wind and bullet drop, to camouflage and placing yourself or your team in the best position to take a photo or pull a trigger, Webb and Doherty cover the critical elements that comprise the twenty-first century sniper.
