Here is the single greatest volume ever published
about Civil War sharpshooting, from the expert
perspective of world-renowned sniping and
shooting authority John L. Plaster.
Comprehensive in scope, this book details how
sharpshooters were recruited, trained, and organized.
Plaster fully explores their armaments, their tactics
and techniques, and how they operated (sometimes
decisively) in battle. Discover dozens of accomplished
and colorful but forgotten sharpshooters
who, until now, had faded into the past.
Exhaustively researched and profusely illustrated, these pages
contain more than 160 rare photos, along with original artwork.
Excerpted from Plaster's epic The History of Sniping and Sharpshooting
this book is a must-have for historians, reenactors, and students of the
American Civil War.
