Confirmed Kill

By Nigel Cawthorne

Adrenaline-Fueled Stories Of The World’s Best Marksmen, Their Daring Missions And Most Incredible Kill Shots


There’s the one-on-one duel between a U.S. Marine sniper and his North Vietnamese counterpart that ends with a miracle shot straight through the Vietcong soldier’s gun scope. And the shot fired from a mountain ridge in Afghanistan that drops an unsuspecting Taliban fighter over a mile away — the longest confirmed kill in history. These are only two of the verified accounts in a collection that includes the most riveting sniper stories ever. Highly trained snipers play a critical role in every modern military mission and Confirmed Kill accurately relates the unbelievable stories of the most deadly marksmen in today’s elite military forces with accounts of both wartime valor and covert special ops missions. Stalking their targets for days, often in remote areas miles behind enemy lines, these skilled sharpshooters place themselves in the heart of danger with only one goal — get their target.
