SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY CLINT EASTWOOD
From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle's masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.
SEAL Team 3 Chief Chris Kyle served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and elsewhere. For his bravery in battle, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. Following his combat deployments, he became chief instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter-Sniper teams, and he authored the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Doctrine. Today, he is president of Craft International, a worldclass leader in training and security. He lives with his family in Texas, where he devotes much of his spare time to helping disabled veterans.
A sad story about a good man but not a book I could recommend. I have no doubt Kyle was a great patriot and SEAL but he was no creative writer.Published 1 month ago by Wayne A. Anderson
