Description

The Red Circle: My Life in the Navy SEAL Sniper Corps and How I Trained America's Deadliest Marksmen

Now including an excerpt from The Killing School: Inside the World's Deadliest Sniper Program

BEFORE HE COULD FORGE A BAND OF ELITE WARRIORS... HE HAD TO BECOME ONE HIMSELF.

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 riveting look at the inner workings of the U.S. military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist.

Yet it is Webb's distinguished second career as a lead instructor for the shadowy "sniper cell" and Course Manager of the Navy SEAL Sniper Program that trained some of America's finest and deadliest warriors-including Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle-that makes his story so compelling. Luttrell credits Webb's training with his own survival during the ill-fated 2005 Operation Redwing in Afghanistan. Kyle went on to become the U.S. military's top marksman, with more than 150 confirmed kills.

From a candid chronicle of his student days, going through the sniper course himself, to his hair-raising close calls with Taliban and al Qaeda forces in the northern Afghanistan wilderness, to his vivid account of designing new sniper standards and training some of the most accomplished snipers of the twenty-first century, Webb provides a rare look at the making of the Special Operations warriors who are at the forefront of today's military.

Explosive, revealing, and intelligent, The Red Circle provides a uniquely personal glimpse into one of the most challenging and secretive military training courses in the world.

  • Webb of lies

    Bought this book, enjoyed it only to find out half of it's a lie. If you enjoy fiction and made up stories from a former seal current con artist, enjoy.

    Brandon Webb and his partners that helped him develop this true-story have done a tremendous job in painting a picture for all readers to see the world through the lenses of a NAVY SEAL. I have read this book two times and will begin the third in short order because I find the gripping details in this book both exhilarating and obsessively entertaining. Thank you for your hard work Brandon.

    This is a great read. A bit slow out of the gate, but after we get past high school, it picks up substantially. Kind of interesting that so little time was spent on actual sniper missions.

    This book truly is one of the best books I’ve read. If you’ve read other books like Lone Survivor or American Sniper, I guarantee you will love this one. Well done, Webb. And thank you for your service.

    Brandon's skills as a writer are as sharp as his skills as a Warrior. Even if you are not a fan of the military genre, his story of going from disenfranchised youth to American Hero is compelling. His experience with and insight into recent history sheds light on some of the dark corners where the truth has been hiding in both Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as some lesser know hot spots. Congratulations on a great book Mr. Webb.

    This is a page turner. I could not put this one down. Absolutely outstanding accounts of both grit and personal sacrifice with some necessary comic relief and a little bit of salt. A great read.

    This memoir is incredible from beginning to end. A must read for everyone. I walked away from this book with a deeper respect to the men who work everyday protecting this country. I will never take my freedom for granted again.
