THE SHARPSHOOTER IS A FAST-PACED NOVEL CHRONICLING THE CIVIL WAR EXPERIENCE OF JURIAN  BAECKER.... ONE OF THE SHARPSHOOTER’S GREATEST STRENGTHS IS ITS DESCRIPTION OF BATTLE SCENES...IN STUNNING DETAIL WITH RAPID-FIRE DIALOGUE. ADDITIONALLY, [THE CHARACTERS]...PROVIDE VIVID ACCOUNTS OF WEAPONRY AND TACTICS USED BY BERDAN’S SHARPSHOOTERS... THIS NOVEL IS RECOMMENDED FOR CIVIL WAR BUFFS WHO ENJOY HISTORICAL FICTION...ALSO IS SUITABLE FOR YOUNGER READERS.”
