    I would also have to add Enemy at the Gates with Jude Law. That was one helluva good movie IMO. And it is also about snipers (WWII). Actually, I'd like to see that one again.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Since we are talking about snipers how about Simo Hayha. Finnish sniper that got over 500 sniper kills and 200 machine gun kills in 3 months during WW2.

    Looks like Mr. Henderson wrote a sequel to Marine Sniper...I didn't know this.

    He actually has written four books about Vietnam, with a fifth on the way in 2006.

    I love war movies, anything from "To Hell and Back"(true account of audie murphy, the most decorated soldier in WWII) to "Tears of the Sun." "Enemy at the Gates" was an awesome movie, except that Jude Law was in it. :razz: My dad was in WWII, I think that is why I am so enamored with war movies because he didn't really like to talk about it much so I wanted to see what he went through. He did say that "Saving Private Ryan"(one of my favorites) is TOO realistic.....he watched it with some of his friends from the VFW and many of them were crying. My dad was in the 2nd wave at Normandy.....not the suicide run, but he did tell me about wading through the bodies to get to the beach and that the water was pure red.
