Webb also shows how this training plays out in combat, using real-life exploits of the world's top snipers, including Jason Delgado, who led a Marine platoon in the Battle of Husaybah and 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 three-month 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 and most skilled snipers of this generation, including Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor), Adam Brown (Fearless), and Chris Kyle (American Sniper). From recon and stalk, to complex last minute adjustments, and finally, the moment of taking the shot, 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.

Wasn't really the book I had hoped for. I believed it would be more about the actual school with real life applications of the training. instead, it was a collection of memoirs with bits of anecdotal education.

Not much new here
If you've read any the snipers other books IE The Reaper/a the Red Circle, then you will find this book fairly redundant. That being said I especially enjoyed learning more about the exploits of Rob Furlong which I previously didn't know.
