During WW II, it took 25,000 Allied bullets to produce one enemy kill. In Korea, 50,000 rounds. In Vietnam, U.S. forces expended 200,000 rounds to add one digit to the body count. By contrast, America's most skilled combat marksmen - its snipers - average an astonishing 1.3 rounds. In One Shot - One Kill, you'll relive the incredible - yet confirmed - exploits of this elite cadre of men, told in their own words. You'll get the full details of the evolution of the Marine sniper rifle, from the off-the-rack sporting arms first used to the armory-built, match-grade specialty tool in use today. You'll also learn the full story behind the permanent establishment of the U.S.M.C. Scout/Sniper School in 1977, where men are taught to place shots with surgical precision... to deadly effect.
