As a huge book junkie I spend a good chunk of my time surfing Amazon for books on all sorts of thing, like werewolves (obviously). On my most recent search I came across something that made me raise an eyebrow – U.S. Army Werewolf Sniper Manual by the Department of the Army.
The official U.S. Army field manual—with 100+ illustrations of
werewolf tracking and sniping techniques and equipment
This illustrated field manual, prepared by the Department of the Army, provides information needed to train and equip werewolf snipers and to aid them in their werewolf extermination missions and operations.
The werewolf sniper has special abilities, training, and equipment. His job is to deliver highly accurate rifle fire against lycanthropic enemy targets. Werewolf sniping requires knowledge of lycanthrope tracking and the development of basic infantry skills to a high degree of perfection. A werewolf sniper’s training incorporates a wide variety of subjects designed to increase his effectiveness and to ensure his survival in werewolf territory during full moons. The U.S. Army Werewolf Sniper Manual covers:
* Personnel Selection Criteria * Werewolf Tracking/Countertracking * Werewolf Sniper and Observer Responsibilities * Team Firing Techniques * Werewolf M24 Sniper Weapon System * Werewolf Ammunition * Werewolf Sniper Sighting Devices * Other Equipment * Werewolf Marksmanship and Ballistics * Effects of Weather * Engagement of Moving Werewolf Targets * Camouflage * Movement * Werewolf Sniper Positions * Werewolf Observation * Target Detection and Selection * Range Estimation * Information Records * Mission Preparation (including Moon Cycle Calendar) * Operations: Insertion, Execution, Extraction, and Recovery * Werewolf Sniper Sustainment Training
At the bottom of the page it says “This book was written by order of the Secretary of the Army.” Haha. Of course it was.
My curiosity got the best of me and I added this book to my Amazon wish list, I couldn’t help it.
