Now a blockbuster motion picture directed by Clint Eastwood – Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture
Includes exclusive new material by Taya Kyle about the making of the American Sniper film.
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 â€śThe Legendâ€ť; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (â€śthe devilâ€ť) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of warâ€”including the deaths of two close SEAL teammatesâ€”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, Kyleâ€™s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.
