Sniper One by SGT Dan Mills

Excellent book that is well written. Sargent Mills tells the story that portrays the hardship and emotional stress of combat along with the details of his duty as a sniper.


This book was awesome! I absolutely loved it! It was an interesting look into the fighting British in Iraq. That is something I dont hear much about in the states. This is by far the best book on war I have read to date!

love the brits from a yank

great read . the author tells a riveting story about how the sniper is taught and their tactics as well as pulling the reader into a story of al amarah and the firefight of all engagements.describing the men who were with him was moving. i was very interested in them and their outcome. thank you dan mills for writig this book.

Could not keep this book down for a second!!

This book was very fast paced and a fantastic read. I cannot believe the story of Al-Amarah wasn't printed in any of the newspapers. The writer provides a detailed account of the conditions the soldiers had to endure at the front-line and the hostilities faced by the Al-Sadr Shia militias. The soldiers are constantly living under the barrage of mortar fire at temperatures of up to fifty-degrees, and surrounded by very heavily armed militias. It also provides some great photographs of the compound, the surrounding area, and of the soldiers themselves. This book is incredibly inspiring and I have complete and utter respect for all the soldiers fighting for the security of Iraq. To be honest I am not doing any justice to this book with this review, it is that good. Whatever the views you may have of the Iraq war, this book is a MUST read.

As Good as Chickenhawk. All Action.

Straight away you are in his team, living the terrible dream. What I loved about this book was the comradeship of, & in, his team. Every negative that these guy's come across, was turned into a positive. I found this book to be very real, honest, & breath taking in places. The courage these guy's have, has to be respected. When reading this book, you are in the war. The rights & wrongs are not discussed in this book, nor should they be. This is action, real action. Sgt Dan Mills takes us inside Iraq & fortunately, takes us back out again. If you enjoy factual war books, then you will love this book. A MUST READ.
