Ed Kugler, Dead Center: A Marine Sniper's Two-Year Odyssey in the Vietnam War

“Dead Center by Ed Kugler is about a Marine who, while...”

Written on: 28/04/2004 by Thor the Mighty (1 review written)

Good Points
This book is non stop action and is strait to the point unlike most 'Nam books around these days. Kugler is not afraid to put things bluntly, and stray from the norm.

I've read this book around 23 times and I have not got tired of it yet.

Bad Points
None.

General Comments
Dead Center by Ed Kugler is about a Marine who, while in Vietnam, goes from being a grunt, to being a Marine Corps sniper, and for a short period, a Force Recon sniper. This book tells of a man who helped create a sniper team independent of traviling with the regular troopers, and making a profound difference in the war. This book should be read by anyone who has ever even thought of picking up a 'Nam book.

Brushy Bill's Response to 153367_Thor the Mighty's Review

Excelent reading, I actually know one of the people in this book, in the book, he was called Tomo. He is a great Highpower rifle competitor to this very day. One day at a rifle competition, a fellow shooter showed up in full army reserve clothing. He was serving duty that weekend. His commanding officer allowed him to shoot in our rifle match that day since it was held on the military reservation where he was stationed. He stated that he was allowed off since it was his 21st B-day. Tomo spoke up and said he "spent his 21st B-day hiding in some elephant grass, we were hiding real hard too" This book is well worth the time to read. It is one that you will read many times. Read the authors comments in the back of the book first. It offers some real insight to the Author.

I agree with this review because... I know one of the men that Mr. Kugler served with. In the Book, he was called Tomo. This is a book that you will read more than once. Please read the comments by the author in the back of the book first. They offer some great insight to the man who served his country with valor.
