My nephew (15yrs old) is in the ROTC and is very interested in becoming a sniper for the US Military. Can anyone suggest some good reading material. I would like to get him some for Christmas. I have read and enjoyed "One Shot One Kill" (Srgt.Carlos Hathcock USMC)and plan on buying this one for him.

Great Choice on Hathcock. Although its Vietman era, your nephew can still get a good perspective on what it was like.

a couple more:

"Marine Sniper :93 kills" by Charles Henderson (about hathcock)

"Advanced Tactical Marksman" by Dave Lauck

SGT Dan Mills has written a couple, most notable "Sniper One" which gives a good perspective of allied units

or you could go with acutual USMC Sniper/Scout Manual
