Additional Information

From the New York Times Bestselling Author and Co-Star of Fox's American Grit comes a rare and powerful book on the art of being a sniper. Way of the Reaper is a step-by-step accounting of how a sniper works, through the lens of Irving's most significant kills - none of which have been told before. Each mission is an in-depth look at a new element of eliminating the enemy, from intel to luck, recon to weaponry. Told in a thrilling narrative, this is also a heart-pounding true story of some of The Reaper's boldest missions including the longest shot of his military career on a human target of over half a mile.

In Iraq and Afghanistan, Nick Irving earned his nickname in blood, destroying the enemy with his sniper rifle and in deadly firefights behind a .50 caliber machine gun. He engaged a Taliban suicide bomber during a vicious firefight, used nearly silent sub-sonic ammo, and was the target of snipers himself. Way of the Reaper attempts to place the reader in the heat of battle, experiencing the same dangers, horrors and acts of courage Irving faced as an elite member of the 3rd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, while also examining the personal ramifications of taking another life.

Readers will experience the rush of the hunt and the dangers that all snipers must face, while learning what it takes to become an elite manhunter. Like the Reaper himself, this explosive book blazes new territory and takes no prisoners.

This is an excellent read and a wild roller coaster sure to get anyone thinking about the situations we place our combat veterans. If you want to know what it is like to be in the heat of battle and you don't know anyone that will reveal that kind of experience, then this is a good book to read. Nicholas does a good job of describing what it felt like to be there in Afghanistan and Iraq performing night time operations. He also describes the comradery, respect and close relationships he had with his fellow rangers. You will also some perspective as to why these combat veterans come back home and have difficulty readjusting back to a normal peaceful civil society. I praise Nicholas Irving for being able to open up and share his experiences. There are a few minor mistakes in information and few typos, but that does not reduce my recommendation.
I learned a lot. This was well written and very insightful. I think Irving is doing a huge service by sharing these thoughts and experiences. Most of us will never have to have this level of focus and commitment to protect our freedom. I, for one, am grateful for his service and his book.
So much better than is first book for editing and flow. His book on sniping is still a valuable addition to the books out there on the topic despite its many errors in spelling etc. Very easy and enjoyable read giving a ground pounder;s eye view of life in the sand box,
