Présentation de l'éditeur

The explosive true story of Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legendary Marine sniper in the Vietnam War.

There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has only been one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock.

He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines—on their own ground. And each time, he emerged from the jungle having done his duty. His record is one of the finest in military history, with ninety-three confirmed kills.

This is the story of a simple man who endured incredible dangers and hardships for his country and his Corps. These are the missions that have made Carlos Hathcock a legend in the brotherhood of Marines. They are exciting, powerful, chilling—and all true.

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.

Format: Poche Achat vérifié
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

HASH(0x996cf87c) 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.

HASH(0x996cf8d0) 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

HASH(0x996cfaa4) 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!

HASH(0x996cfd20) 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.

HASH(0x996d3138) étoiles sur 5 One of the BEST military biographies ever written 12 décembre 2002
Par Contemplative Imaging - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I first heard of Carlos Hathcock when I was in the Air Force. I heard of him from Roberto "Bobby" Barrera, a former Marine and Vietnam veteran who was riding on the same AMTRAC as Hathcock (an AMTRAC is an amphibious armored vehicle) when it rolled over a hidden mine and was blown-up. Barrera credited Hathcock with saving his life, along with that of many fellow Marines aboard that vehicle. Bobby read us the story of that event from this very book.
Later on, I heard the story of how Hathcock engaged a Viet Cong "mule" bringing guns and ammo down the Ho Chi Minh train on his bike. Hathcock fired a round that destroyed the bike and left the boy shaken, but untouched. However, the youngster grabbed one of the AK-47s he was carrying on his bike, inserted a magazine, and began searching for the sniper who shot his bike! Carlos fired again, killing the boy.
Another famous story I heard tell involves the sniper vs. sniper showdown. Carlos and an NVA sniper were tracking one another, both intent on killing before they were killed. Both had their guns sited on each other, but Carlos got his round off first, which went right through the other guy's scope, into his eye, and killed him instantly.
Most recently, I heard of Carlos Hathcock again through firearms manufacturer Springfield Armory. They recently introduced a new version of their fine M1A rifle (a "civilized" M-14 battle rifle) called the M-25 "White Feather" Tactical Rifle. Definitely the most advanced rifle that Springfield has ever produced, and it comes with a facsimile of Hathcock's signature engraved on the receiver. I thought it was an excellent tribute to Carlos, especially considering that he liked that M-14 rifle much better than the M-16.
Finally, I found this book; "Marine Sniper;" and after hearing about exploits of Carlos Hathcock for so many years from so many sources, decided I needed to read about him for myself. Having just finished the book, I must confess that this has been one of the most enjoyable reads that I've come across in the past several years. Even my wife; who has no interest in the Marines, snipers, or Vietnam; found the book to be extremely well written and very enjoyable.
I read a LOT of biographies, especially those concerning American military heroes. Yet this book by Charles Henderson stands head and shoulders above them all. Henderson does a superb job writing a book that an average Marine recruit would be able to comprehend, yet it is detailed and interesting enough for even an officer to enjoy. Rather than writing in the dry, boring academic style that so many biographies are made up of, he wisely chooses to write a "story" about Hathcock, and the book reads more like a fine novel than the typical end-noted, scholarly biography. But that doesn't mean the book is short on factual information or research, for there is more than enough information to soothe the savage nit-picker. Just about any Marine Vietnam veteran and/or competition rifle shooter can verify most of the information in this book, if you don't believe in it yourself. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to have Bobby Barrera to verify the horrible incident where a mine hidden in a road blew up the AMTRAC he and Hathcock were riding; both men suffered severely from that attack.
Yes, there are some areas in this book which are obviously "fictional" in that Henderson wasn't able to interview the dead Vietnamese that Hathcock had just killed with his rifle. So there are thoughts and words put to these real-life characters that may or may not be true --we'll never know. But Henderson uses this technique very sparingly, and when it is used, is done in a very effective, professional manner that makes for a most interesting read.
It is also quite obvious that this book was a labor of love for the author, and the loving care in which Hathcock's tale is told is evident on every single page of this book. Henderson holds Hathcock in very high esteem, as do innumerable fellow Americans, fellow Marines and fellow competition shooters. It is rare to find a book like this, and I am eternally thankful to Charles Henderson for writing it. Now I too can finally understand the high esteem upon which so many people hold Carlos Hathcock. I know I will be telling my children about him, and pray to God that they grow up to be even half the man that he was.
