By Chris Kyle with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice
#5524 From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head.
Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war – including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates – and, in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife Taya speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris.
Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time. This book includes new material by Taya Kyle about the making of the American Sniper film.
