Publisher's Summary

The Killing School brings listeners inside the US Naval Special Warfare (SEAL) Scout/Sniper Course - the gruelling three-month training program that produces the world's deadliest snipers.
As a SEAL sniper and combat veteran, Brandon Webb was tasked with revamping the US Naval Special Warfare (SEAL) Scout/Sniper School, incorporating the latest advances in technology to create an entirely new course that continues to test even the best warriors. In this revealing new book, Webb takes listeners through every aspect of the elite training. Trainees learn to utilize every edge possible to make their shot count - studying crosswinds, barometric pressure, latitude, and even the rotation of the Earth to become ballistic experts. In addition to marksmanship, each SEAL's endurance, stealth, and mental and physical stamina are pushed to the breaking point.
Webb also shows how this training plays out in combat, using real-life exploits of the world's top snipers, including Jason Delgado, who made some of the most remarkable kill shots in the Iraq War; Nicholas Irving, the US Army Ranger credited with 33 kills in a single tour in Afghanistan; and Rob Furlong, who during Operation Anaconda delivered the then-longest kill shot in history. During Webb's sniper school tenure, the course graduated some of the deadliest snipers of this generation, including Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor), Adam Brown (Fearless), and Chris Kyle (American Sniper). The Killing School demonstrates how today's sniper is trained to function as an entire military operation rolled into a single individual - an army of one.

Slow start goes delightful later on

This book goes deeper in the training and mentality of modern star snipers than any other book I have read on the subject. It also goes into the writers mind and is better for it.

Thank you for writing this and creating Red Circle.

Sincerely,
a donor.

great book but near the end was rather annoying

great book, loved it except the last 5 hours were a drag as every 3 or so minutes it switches stories between 4 snipers and it can be confusing

Great story.

Excellent story that had me not wanting to stop listening.
The performance could have been better but is still manageable to be a really enjoyable read.
