SAS Sniper: The Rob Maylor story

2 Reviews
As one of Australia’s most highly trained and successful combat marksmen, Rob Maylor saw action in East Timor, Iraq and most recently in Afghanistan where he won medals for gallantry in some of the heaviest fighting in the conflict. In this book he tells of his near-death experience in the Blackhawk helicopter that crashed off Fiji, killing two of his mates. He was also in the personal security detail of the East Timorese President, Xanana Gusmao and the Chief of the Australian Defence Force, Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston. Maylor writes of his dedication to ‘the dark art of sniping’ and touches on the history of the great snipers who came before him. It is a book filled with the rough humour and the almost religious sense of mateship of the SAS regiment.
