A Rifleman Went to War – Herbert W. McBride – Free PDF Download

rifleman

This tale of a Canadian soldiers time spent of the Western Front of World War One would go on to inspire the formation of sniper-specific training in the US Military. McBride spent two years in combat, and was wounded a total of 7 times serving with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during The Great War.

His personal account of the early 20th Century battlefield is a tribute to the hard men of that era, as he describes the horrors of combat in a very nonchalant, matter-of-fact manner. The book contains personal reflections and accounts, tactics, and McBride’s own theories on the evolution of combat.

While much of the book may be outdated as far as today’s combat is concerned, some material is entirely up to date and could still be put to good use on the modern battlefield. There is a reason why this book is still on the required reading list of the U.S. Marine Corps Sniper School.
