From the Back Cover

Imagine, if you can, this routine going on for two, four, six or more hours, with the paint blistering on the gun barrels and the exhausted gunners trying to snatch a bite to eat or a few minutes sleep. Imagine all this and you begin to see why we tend to get cross when we get called "the long range snipers."
