This is a collection of the lesson outlines that were used to teach the blocks or instruction at the USMC scout/sniper school. The information is very dated (appears to be about 1979) and with each chapter being in the format of a lesson outline, it becomes a bit odd to read. There is some valuable information, contained within the book, but it takes some digging in a clumsy format to retrieve it. Obviously some of the equipment covered is no longer in use, like the Redfield scopes, so be aware that some of the data is old and will not be of much use. Additionally, the images and charts for the lessons are not with the lessons.
