Brandon Webb's experiences in the world's most elite sniper corps are the stuff of legend. From his grueling years of training in Naval Special Operations, to his combat tours in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, The Red Circle provides a rare and personal look at the inner workings of the US military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist. Yet it is Webb's distinguished second career designing new post-9/11 sniper training courses that make him such an interesting former operator. Following the events of 9/11, Brandon went on to manage the SEAL sniper course, designing new curricula and training a generation of SEAL graduates who became some of the most accomplished snipers of the 21st century.

To show how bad it is, the routine liar Chris Kyle referred to Webb as "a liar" (with a great many SEALs agreeing to that - as many also have reported with Kyle).

The ultimate:
