"Shadow Team is probably the most productive sniper team in American military history, accounting for 276 confirmed kills in a six-month span with no casualties of their own. For the first time ever they explain what it's like to kill a man and what it takes to become one of the elite. By contrast, the four-man sniper team known as Headhunter Two was killed in 2004 in Ramadi, Iraq. Their deaths not only caused a reevaluation of sniper tactics and techniques but created a desire for vengeance that was exacted nearly two years later. Based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews, Hans Halberstadt gets inside the sniper mind and shows how they think and interact with each other, how missions are planned and executed, how the weapons work, and even what happens when a bullet finally strikes its target. Both a uniquely intimate look at what makes a sniper tick and a harrowing read filled with dramatic war tales, Trigger Men is a book about killers and killing, without apology and without remorse"--Container.
