Shooter : the autobiography of the top-ranked Marine sniper by Jack Coughlin( Book )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With more than sixty confirmed kills, Gunnery Sgt. Coughlin is the Marine Corps' top-ranked sniper. A divorced father of two who grew up in a wealthy Boston suburb, he had never even held a gun when he joined the Marines, but would spend the next twenty years behind the scope of a long-range precision rifle. In that time he accumulated one of the most successful records in the Corps, ranging through many of the world's hotspots. Now he has written a highly personal story about his deadly craft, taking readers deep inside an invisible society. This is not a heroic battlefield memoir, but the careful study of an exceptional man who must keep his sanity while carrying forward one of the deadliest legacies in the U.S. military today.--From publisher description

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Admiral Yamamoto was a cigar-smoking, poker-playing, Harvard-educated expert on America, and that knowledge served him well as architect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. For the next sixteen months, this military genius lived up to his prediction that he would run wild in the Pacific. After American code-breakers learned that the admiral would be vulnerable for a few hours, a handful of colorful and expendable U.S. Army pilots flew the longest over-water fighter mission ever, and ambushed and killed him. The Japanese never won another major naval battle, but the victorious American pilots were tormented for the rest of their lives by what happened that day, a military mystery that has been covered up since the end of the war
On scope : a sniper novel by Jack Coughlin( Book )
9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Spain is on the brink of economic collapse and European banks demand that any bailout be linked to harsh domestic changes. An alliance of Islamic bankers counters with a rescue package containing no conditions at all. The underlying goal: to break the unity of Europe and put Madrid on the path back to Islamic rule. When the United States stridently opposes that deal, terrorists storm the American consulate in Barcelona and slaughter an entire six-man U.S. Marine security guard. Washington decides the time has come to change the rules of counter-terrorism response, and instead of going after the individual hired gunmen, it unleashes black operations team Task Force Trident to take down the high-ranking financiers known as the Group of Six who were really responsible for the slaughter. Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson, one of the world's best snipers, and his beautiful sidekick Beth Ledford, go on the attack, and bodies fall from Mallorca to Madrid. Meanwhile, Algerian mastermind Yanis Rebiane puts pressure on Spain to decide before the Group of Six cracks, while his killing-machine son, Djahid roams the United States, murdering anyone his father deems a threat to the radical Islamic takeover scheme. Once Swanson's name is unearthed from secret files, Kyle and Djahid become hunter and prey. In On Scope by Jack Coughlin and Donald A. Davis, one shot will decide the future of Spain, NATO, and the European Union"--
