Sniping in France (Paperback)
Winning the Sniping War in the Trenches
Available for the first time in years, this is a new edition of the classic account by the adventurer and big game hunter who developed and ran the British Army sniping programme in the First World War. When the war started in 1914, Germany's edge in the sniping duel on the Western Front cost thousands of British casualties. Sniping in France explains the methods Hesketh-Prichard used to reverse the situation and help win the sniping war. A glossary of terms and a photograph of the author have been added.
This excellent account of the British sniper during the First World War was first published in 1920 but has been out of print for some time... Accounts of sniping in France are few and far between, making this an excellent insight and a timely reprint.www1geek.wordpress.com
