They have one mission— and they accomplish it with one bullet.

In Operation Iraqi Freedom, there is a special breed of hunter for whom the prey is the enemy—and every day is hunting season. This soldier is a HOG—a Hunter of Gunman. These stories give firsthand accounts of just how dangerous Iraq can be, the experience of these young men, and the consequences involved with being on a Marine Scout/Sniper team—an elite group that few can make, and possessing the precision that no others can master.

From sniping on a rooftop in Baghdad to unknowingly being surrounded in a palm grove in the city of Hit, these stories will transport the reader right into the heat of the desert war, where one shot can make all the difference.
