Both a uniquely intimate look at what makes a sniper tick and a harrowing read filled with dramatic war tales, Trigger Men is a book about killing and what it takes to be the ultimate warrior.

            Halberstadt takes readers deeper inside the elusive world of snipers than ever before, from recruitment and training to the brutality of the killing fields. Mixed into the thrilling narrative, for the first time ever in their own words, American combat snipers talk about what it is like to kill a man and what it takes to become one of the elite. Based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews, Halberstadt gets inside the sniper mind and shows how Shadow Team confidence led to success that led to even more aggressive operations. Readers will learn how snipers think and interact as a team, how missions are planned and executed, how the weapons work, and even what happens when a bullet strikes its target.

Praise for Trigger Men

"Bordering on indispensable." --Booklist

“An insightful analysis-with first-person commentary from veterans of Iraq-of the changing role of the sniper on the modern urban battlefield…not for the squeamish, but for those looking for a thorough primer on the role of the military sniper in today's counterinsurgency missions, this is a solid introduction.” -–Publishers Weekly

"A chilling look inside what a sniper's effect has on both friend and foe. Straightforward and insightful. A must read for all Americans. --Jack Coughlin, New York Times bestselling author of Shooter
