Publisher's Summary

A look at two of the United States military's most elite and successful snipers of all time: Chuck Mawhinney and Adelbert Waldron. 

In 1991, Chuck Mawhinney was reluctantly dragged out of anonymity when it was revealed that he held the record among United States Marine Corps snipers with over 103 confirmed kills. Here, we take a look at the mind-set and philosophy of an American sniper as he is thrown into Arizona territory (named as such because of its numerous Wild West-style firefights) at the height of the Vietnam War. 

Before there was "American sniper" Chris Kyle, there was Adelbert "Bert" Waldron. Waldron had over 109 confirmed kills in the Vietnam War. He received two Distinguished Service Crosses as well as a Silver Star for his exploits and heroism during the war. Yet, he remains largely unknown to the public. Here, we discuss some of the mystery and myths regarding Waldron, questioning the number of his kills, the reasons behind his questionable discharge, and his shady dealings with international arms dealer Mitchell Werbell III.
