Summary

The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood&;s blockbuster, Academy-Award nominated movie. 

&;An amazingly detailed account of fighting in Iraq--a humanizing, brave story that&;s extremely readable.&; &; PATRICIA CORNWELL, New York Times Book Review

"Jaw-dropping...Undeniably riveting." &;RICHARD ROEPER, Chicago Sun-Times

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.
