Gripping, eye-opening, and powerful, American Sniper is the astonishing autobiography of SEAL Chief Chris Kyle, who is the record-holding sniper in U.S. military history. Kyle has more than 150 officially confirmed kills (the previous American record was 109), though his remarkable career total has not been made public by the Pentagon.
In this New York Times bestselling memoir, Kyle shares the true story of his extraordinary decade-long career, including his multiple combat tours in Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom) and elsewhere from 1999-2009.
Kyle’s riveting first-person account of how he went from Texas rodeo cowboy to expert marksman and feared assassin offers a fascinating view of modern-day warfare and one of the most in-depth and illuminating looks into the secret world of Special Ops ever written.
Chris Kyle writes about more than just his involvement as an American Navy SEAL sniper serving in Iraq, but also writes about his working relationship with other branches within the military.
Chris Kyle gives you a look inside the life he and his fellow SEAL's lived during the Iraq War, and also shares the difficulties he faced when he came home to the US in between tours of duty and for finally upon his retirement from the US Navy.
He also shares some very humorous stories as well.
