Publisher's Summary

It takes a tough mindset to be a successful sniper, to be able to dig in for days on your own as you wait for your target, to stay calm on a battlefield when you yourself have become the target the enemy most wants to take out. Craig Harrison has what it takes, and in November 2009 in Afghanistan, under intense pressure, he saved the lives of his comrades with the longest confirmed sniper kill: 2,475 meters.

In this unflinching autobiography, Craig catapults us into the heat of the action as he describes his active service in the Balkans, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and gives heart-stopping accounts of his sniper ops as he fought for his life on the rooftops of Basra and the barren hills of Helmand province. Craig was blown up by an IED in Afghanistan and left battling severe PTSD. After his identity was revealed in the press he also had to cope with al Qaeda threats against him and his family.

For Craig, the price of heroism has been devastatingly high. Powerful and compelling, The Longest Kill is a must-listen for fans of military memoirs.

To call this story just "great" is an insult

I recommend this book highly. This part is just filler because I am still speechless.

Slow start, but so worth the listen.

I’ve read a lot of psychology books on sociopaths- this sniper had all of the environmental factors associated with one... but, instead- he fought to become more human, despite his profession. He was treated horribly by the UK military... not that ours are any better, but he and his family deserved better. Come to this book to read about being a sniper and stay to learn more about becoming a man.

Remarkable

If you know of the guy, you know this true story is remarkable. What he did is “cool” listening. What he’s dealing with today is real as a result. This story only touches on where the real battle starts.

Not sure anything I write makes it’s way to Craig - but if it does, thanks for telling your story. It’s important. As are you.

Great story and even better reader

I’ve complained in the past about the readers but this guy was spot on. An amazing and true story about a man who served within the past 10 years and was still horribly mistreated after giving 20 years to the British army.
