Publisher's Summary

June 6, 1944. On the dawn of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, two snipers find themselves fighting a battle all their own. One is a backwoods hunter from the Appalachian Mountains in the American South, while the other is the dreaded German "Ghost Sniper" who earned his nickname on the Eastern Front. Locked in a deadly duel across the hedgerow country of France, the hunter matches wits and tactics against the marksman, both of them one bullet away from victory or defeat as Allied forces struggle to gain a foothold in Europe.

A good war-history-based book

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I'm a fan of history, but would not call myself a historian by any stretch of the imagination. I say that because I have no clue how accurate this story is to actual history. I can say it "felt" realistic, but I haven't done any fact checking because this is a work of fiction and my time is better spent doing other things, like listening to more good books. I thought the pacing of the book is great, there was plenty of action and suspense, and the narrator was really good. If you like war-history-based fiction, then you should definitely pick this one up.

A sniper story for the ages

WW2 provides a plethora of material for an author to work with. While this tale is fiction in one can readily imagine that circumstances like it took place in reality. One only had to look to the battle Of Stalingrad for one of the greatest sniper stories of all time (fictionalized in book form as war of the rats and movie form as enemy at the gates). This story even briefly touched upon Stalingrad as part of its backstory. This is the first in a series of sniper tales. The author and the narrator (who does amazing work!) tell the story of an American sniper team in WW2. Truly enjoyed it all and can't wait for the next chapter to unfold. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
