Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster movie which was nominated for six academy awards, including best picture.

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.

    I loved this book from the moment I picked it up to the last page. My only regret is that I never had a chance to meet this amazing person. Chris Kyle was an American hero and an amazing father, husband and friend to all those lives that he touched. To say that the only the good die young is an understatement. I could go on and on, but I will end with Chris Kyle is my hero! God bless him and his Family.

    Couldn't put it down. I think as American people we owe it to Chris Kyle to hear his story. A true hero.

    When it seems like so many have forgotten what America is all about, Chris Kyle reminds us all in the way he lived. This book goes way beyond the hero of battle and shows us how to be a hero in life. Thank you Chris Kyle for your service to this country.

    This is more than just an autobiography, it is a deeper look into a great mans life that he dedicated to protecting and serving this country as well as the sacrifices and hardships he faced between country and family. As you read through the various parts of Chris' life you almost feel as if you personally know him and his family. I encourage anyone even considering reading this to do so. It will shed light on so much more than just a war. I purchased this yesterday around 6 or 7 PM and at 7:30PM the next day I am writing a review of the book. Well worth the read and there are some strong messages in it that will make you rethink your life.

    Great read. Much too short. I paid 9 dollars for what I thought was 400+ pages. Instead it was closer to 20

    What a great book!!! Thank you Chris Kyle, and family for the sacrifices that you made for our freedom that is often taken for granted these days. I recommend this book to anyone who believes in God, Country, and Family. I couldn't put it down or stop reading.
