A truly stunning story. I have read this 4 times and it's still as captivating now as the first time' 5***** Reader rReview Read more Details Well, it could be. I wouldn't know. I gave up fairly soon, because I just couldn't, COULD NOT stand the stupidity. Sorry, Sgt. Mills, but you are obviously a blood-thirsty idiot and embodiment of all the bad clichés the average civilian has about soldiers - that they are in it for the killing, for the blood, because they think that war is fun. Realistic infantry action, and slightly less realistic tanks, helicopters, and planes have been enhanced with a choice of almost every faction, unit, or equipment used in battle. Arma 3 today is about war in Vietnam and the Middle East, clashes between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, or Navy Seals against ISIS fighters. The list is endless and Arma 3 is in fact similar to GTA 5 – immortal and still great, but in serious, a military setting. It's a game where you can choose your own soldier, role, and conflict, it just takes a bit of effort to sort out and upload the appropriate add-ons. The series moves in accordance to the chronology of the events of World War II, so after a campaign in Italy in the fourth part, this time, OSS agent Karl Fairburne visits Normandy and other regions of northern France, most notably the impressive Mont-Saint-Michel monastery. However, nothing changes in terms of the story. For the third time in a row, high-ranking Nazi officers are plotting a sinister plan to create and use the powerful "wunderwaffe," and again, our hero will have to thwart these plans. The game brings some impressive locations that were rendered using photogrammetry to provide high image fidelity, and players can benefit from the great freedom of action during missions. Of course, there's also the slow-mo X-ray camera that reveals the damage dealt by our bullets. What does a typical sniper mission look like? Games heavily oversimplify many factors, while greatly exaggerating others. One reason is the limitations of game engines in the range of terrain drawing, so that scopes often zoom in more than they should. Likewise, it unnaturally increases bullet drop at distances where it is usually negligible and brightens the enemy sniper's optics reflexes a lot to make them easier to locate.

Not a book for everyone, especially those that are really into political correctness, or "if only the rest of the world thinks the same way as me". The book is frank, covering a battle/siege that was little reported during Iraq invasion by coalition forces, by the leader of a British sniper team. It does not go into the politics or rights or wrongs of the conflict, it is only about an individuals experience and recollection of his time there. No, I don't object to the idea that one could enjoy being a soldier. I'm neither stupid nor naive. But they way Mills' writes it?Despite being 8 years old, Arma 3 still remains the most compelling and rich in content soldier simulator on the market. It offers single-player capmaigns and missions, co-op, and PvP multi-player. At the time of its release, its highlight was a feature campaign depicting a fictional conflict on a Greek island, but no one is likely to remember it now. Once there were a lot of add-ons to expand gameplay options, and even more important were the countless modifications created by the community around the game. This was one of the refreshing parts of the book; there was little "I" in it. Where other writers boast of their accomplishments, Mills is more of a "we" type of fellow. If he is lavish in his praise, he is also brutally honest in his criticism. If an officer or subordinate has messed up, Mills names them and lists their offending behavior for all readers to see. When Sgt. Dan Mills and the rest of the 1st Battalion, The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment flew into Iraq in April, 2004, they were supposed to be winning hearts and minds. They were soon fighting for their lives. Within hours of their arrival in Iraq, a grenade bounced off one of the battalion's Land Rovers, rolled underneath and detonated. The ambush marked the beginning of a full-scale firefight during which Mills killed a man with a round that removed his assailant's head. It was going to be a long tour.

Let's be honest – being a hated camper. The sniper in Escape from Tarkov consciously chooses a rifle with a scope, goes to a point that provides a convenient view of the high traffic areas – and waiting! And the wait can be really long, because it's not at all certain that someone will show up in a particular location in this raid, even if it's at the starting point of the map. The shot itself usually has to be fired at a moving target that's able and likely to return fire if missed. So it's a good idea to have a predetermined escape route. I bought this book when I was going through a period of reading lots of the genre. Sniper One: The Blistering True Story of a British Battle Group Under Siege has to be one of the most honest stories I've ever read. Sergeant Dan Mills doesn't hide anything. This awe-inspiring account tells of total war in throat-burning winds and fifty-degree heat, blasted by mortars and surrounded by heavily armed militias. For six months, they fought alone: isolated, besieged and under constant enemy fire. Their heroic stand a modern-day Rorke's Drift. If any of Mills's eighteen-man sniper platoon had thought that the people of Al Amarah were going to welcome them with open arms, they were rapidly forced to reconsider. For the next six months, isolated, besieged and under constant fire, the battalion refused to give an inch.

The Best Sniper Games:

A tale of courage, brutal combat, and a soldier's celebration of his comrades' outstanding performance under impossible conditions, Sniper One is reminiscent of the famous Battle of Rorke's Drift during the 19th Century Zulu War (filmed in Hollywood style as Zulu). This book tells the story of the Battle of Al Amara. A horrible violent hell hole, more Iranian than Iraqi. During 2004 the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment was sent to occupy the town. While the main force was located up at Camp Abu Naji a small battle group was stationed in the main Ba'ath party building in the city centre.
