Modern American Snipers Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Most people think of snipers as shooters perched in urban hides, dealing out death unseen from a considerable distance. But this description barely scratches the surface. Special operations snipers are men with stacked skill sets who have the ability to turn the tide of battles, even when they aren't pulling the trigger. Snipers have played an outsized role in the War on Terror that has earned them the Medal of Honor, Navy Cross, and countless other honors. These are the most experienced warriors on the battlefield, oftentimes the units' best assaulters with years of door-kicking under their belt. These are the men who run ops in small teams across borders, or dress like locals and pull off high-risk vehicle reconnaissance and singleton missions in non-permissive environments.
Modern American Snipers tells the inside story of some of the most heroic patriots in recent American history by the friends and colleagues who knew them best, including: The Legend - Chris Kyle, SEAL Team 3 Chief and the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history; The Reaper - Nick Irving, the first African-American to serve as a sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion, and its deadliest, with 33 confirmed kills; Robert Horrigan, Delta sniper who played a critical role in Operation Anaconda; Don Hollenbaugh, Delta Operator who earned the Distinguished Service Cross while embedded with a Marine platoon in the First Battle of Fallujah.

Just like his other open source "guides" to DEVGRU and Delta Force, Martin's Modern American Snipers delivers the goods...continually.
This book paints a little more graphic picture of Delta's recce squads of Advanced Assaulters and DEVGRU's black team snipers...not to mention the Ranger Regiment's incredible contributions to GWOT (even snippets regarding the Ranger Reconnaissance Regiment), MARSOC, and the ODA's among a HOST of others.
Not to be overlooked, Webb, Murphy, Davis, Irving and the others at SOFREP should be commended as well for their matter-of-fact candor regarding the units, the missions and the men.
As far as recommendations, saying "read this" is simply not enough.
If there is only one fact based wartime novel you read this year - or in your lifetime - MAKE IT THIS ONE!
Nick's book reads as though Nick himself were writing and organizing thoughts. . .He didn't try to impress the reader at all with a sometimes overly-used format so common when other writers co-author a book.
Both were wonderfully individually written, each with an openess and honesty the reader will appreciate..
I have not had an opportunity to complete Modern American Snipers, but scanned enough to know it includes other snipers besides Nick and Chris with whom the public may not be as familiar. I'm anxious to complete it..
