5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hatchcock est un incontournable du sniping 7 juin 2003
Format:Poche
Un texte biographique (et non autobio...) qui montre l'essence meme du sniper: tous les traits communs caractéristiques des snipers du monde entier (de Gallipoli à Taloqan) sont unis dans cet homme: le lien direct avec la nature depuis le plus jeune âge, la connaissance intime des armes, la patience, la connaissance des 1000 astuces qui sauvent une vie, l'observation, le calme. Hatchcock est tout cela, un récit incroyable, sans aucune cruauté, qui raconte les moments les plus (in)connus d'une figure historique du sniping. Les pilotes de chasse on le tumultueux Randy Duke Cunningham, les snipers ont leur incroyable Carlos Hatchcock, un homme de fragile constitution, un sniper hors-pair.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un soldat légendaire aux Etats-Unis 10 octobre 2009
Par Latour07 1ER COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEUR TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS VOIX VINE
Format:Poche
Le sergent Carlos Hathcock du prestigieux Corps des Marines américain est enrôlé pour le Vietnam en qualité de titeur d'élite.

Ce récit biographique est remarquable. Quelle action ! L'homme est attachant. J'ai été rivé par la lecture de scènes de combat mémorables dont celle de la chasse au titeur d'élite vietnamien et celle de l'assassinat, à distance, d'un général vietnamien.

Quel dévouement ! Quel courage ! Quelle solitude aussi, si révélatrice en somme de ces combattants perdus de cette Amérique oublieuse de leurs sacrifices.

Hathcock est devenu une légende aux Etats-Unis parmi les militaires.

NB : livre écrit dans la langue natale de l'auteur, en anglais

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A STORY OF SELF DISCIPLINE AND HEROISM 27 mars 2001
Par Gerard T. McGuire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
There are few books that capture the essence of a Marine the way that this tale does. Gunny Hatchcock was more than a Marine, he was also a heroe and a pioneer. His mastering of the sniper craft and his eventual legend were responsible for the ultimate success of the Marine Corps sniper program.
Charles Henderson does an admirable job with this book but realistically it is a story that sells itself. This narration details some of the many missions Hatchock underwent during two tours of Vietnam. It chronicles the more often than not painful self discipline that made Hatchcock the deadliest sniper in Vietnam. The author also peppers the account with enough of Hatchcock's personal life to show what a great man and Marine he really was.
The tale is amazing enough in relaying how great of a shot that Hatchcock was but the true mark is hit in that is shows that Hatchcock was a devoted Marine. To say he was dedicated would be a dramatic understatement. The tale of his stalking the Vietnam general and the patience it took to get that one shot is worth reading the book alone. It is a testament to not only his training but his own self discipline.
The book reads in a flash. I have read it several times and it hasn't lost any interest. A must read for Marines, military and history buffs, and just anyone curious about a tale of a hero.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perhaps the best book I've ever read 8 juin 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Practically everyone who knows me has heard me rave on and on about this book. I read it for the first time about 4 years ago, after picking it up while browsing through the bookstore. I read the excerpt at the front recounting the Vietnamese general's final moments and I was hooked. I recently finished it again, and it was even better this time. Everything that happens to Hathcock seems like something out of a movie; something no mortal man could survive. I learned to respect the discipline and will-power of a well-trained Marine, and was left in awe of the effectiveness of the sniper. Charles Henderson does his part, too. He not only tells Hathcock's incredible story, but makes it an immersive, addictive one to read. Through his clear and descriptive writing, the reader is transported back in time to the dark "Charlie"-filled jungles of Vietnam, where he lies beside the sniper known as "Long Tra'ng" and experiences not only the satisfaction of a well-placed shot, but also the emotional struggles that a man must deal with when he takes the life of another one. Undoubtedly a timeless classic

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An exceptional biography of a legend 7 février 2001
Par Jason Moll - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Although I lack military experience, I must say that this novel is perhaps one of the greatest military biographies I have read. Perhaps the reason this novel is so enjoyable, is because you have absolutely no idea what story will be told next. Furthermore, if you are like me, you possbily never even heard the name Carlos Hathcock before.
This biography was very enjoyable, because it kept me on the edge of my seat. The personal stories of Hathcock, and eyewitness accounts are amazing. I can't fathom an individual who can shoot a gun accurately at 2,000 yards. But this novel gets you in close and personal with a person who lived by the motto, "one shot, one kill" at a distance of over 1,000 yards.
Henderson, the author, does a great job of describing Hathcock, and his missions by using expert witnesses and documents. Merely page through the bibliography to see the amount of research that Henderson did for this novel, and you will realize that this book must be pretty close to the absolute truth.
Overall, this book is fantastic, due to the missions that are explained in here. Henderson makes you feel right at home with this legend, and creates a lively image on each mission. As a result, this novel is easy to read, because it is a page-turner. Henderson also does an excellent job as to explain the mentality of Hathcock towards the Marines and towards the art of sniping. I never realized that a person who is a sniper must have a unique mentality in order to do this job. And Henderson shows that sniping is not for everyone.
The novel also immortalizes Hathcock as a hero and a leader.....as it should. Hathcock was at the top of his field, and literally designed the manual for this new class in the military. But his ideas have found there way into SWAT teams, and police forces through the world. Hathcock was a hero, who ultimately paid the price for his bravery in the Vietnam war. This novel is a must read for all individuals, not just the military type person!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Read Silent Warrior instead 2 septembre 2004
Par Thomas H. Savery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This is the original book, written about Carlos Hathcock in 1985.

A second book, also written by Charles Henderson called Silent Warrior in 2000, is also about Hathcock. Some of this book is cut and pasted in the second book.

This book however does not have the detail on the background on some of Hathcock's greatest kills, The Frenchman, the Apache, the North Vietnamese General, and the Chinese Colonel.

It does go into more detail on the heartbreaking aftermath of what happened after Hathcock saved the lives of 7 burning Marines on an APC where he himself, by hanging around on the APC to save the others got burned over 93% of his body. His iron will and a bunch of friends kept him in the service until 1979, when he was retired as 100% disabled, due to MS that had kicked in due to his injuries.

Both books are good, but given the choice of reading only one, I would read the second book rather than this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a book about the best sniper ever trained 16 février 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
There is no better history of a sniper account ever wrote. The man did everything but invent the art of sniping. The man has done more for the Marine Corps sniper school and in turn for the Army than anyone. This book is an account of the history of the greatest sniper ever. It takes you through every hunt, stalk, and kill with such detail it makes you feel as though you are laying next to him as his spotter. The book goes over how the sniper rifles for Vietnam came about, and also the things that became basic sniper training that he invented out in the field. It takes you over some of his most famous hunts and shots and finishes with his grand final hunt days before he was due to leave Vietnam. It goes over some accounts of some of the famous NVA snipers that were in the same field as he was, just not as lucky to return home. Once you pick up the book you will not want to put it down as your interest grows in the book, just as the price on his head grew in Vietnam by the NVA. The only disappointment of the whole book is the end, and the fact that you run out of book to read about this great man. The man is a hero, and should have won the Medal of Honor for the amount of lives he saved with his "93 confirmed kills".
