From the Back Cover

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.

Very good read, kept my interest through the whole. He truly was an American hero and he should never been forgotten. I would recommend this book to anyone!

Format: Hardcover
This is a book about life as a Navy Seal fighting in the Middle East. But don't look for depth or for even much reporting on what it's really like to do that for months, or even years as the author did. That information's not here. No one's looking for the author to divulge classified material. But there is literally no sense here of what Kyle went through and how it affected him personally. That doesn't leave the reader with much to absorb.

Don't look here for any thoughts on why the U.S. is in the Middle East in the first place. The author states that's not his job. Unfortunately there's also no thoughts on the cost of these wars- financial and emotional, the sheer drain on the country and the economy- or on how paying for battle will affect his kids' lives and his kids' kids' futures.

Chris describes the American soldiers very well, gives praise and credit to his fellow Marines, SEAL's and Army soldiers before even thinking about himself. His detail about his action and contribution for his country is outstanding. We have lost an American Hero, but the legend lives on. May Chris and God watch proudly over his family.

Format: Hardcover
Don't hold your breath waiting for something amazing to happen in this book, but don't hold your nose either.

The book isn't great, but it's not bad. It's written in an almost folks-y style, with small words and short paragraphs. It is a quick read, and fairly informative of the SEAL though process, but it's also very accessible to younger (or less educated) readers.

Also: This book is full of american rhetoric. Talk about how great the common man is, and how horrible the government treats its citizens (yes, "its" is correct, you don't apostrophe the possessive for an object). There are a few contradictions, such as the author praising the humility of the SEALS, and then explaining how they try to cause a larger disturbance during a bar fight than the last group of SEALS. Also, the author claims to be a humble and calm man when not in battle, but then talks about how he wants to shoot other drivers on the road, and his raging alcoholism problem. It doesn't ruin the book or the facts in the book, but it does ruin some of the credibility of the opinions of the author.

I really enjoyed American Sniper. It gave me a small insight into the life of Chris Kyle and what kind of tasks Navy Seal members are trained to deal with. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is interested in Military style books, fiction or not.

Excellent Book!
The sentence are short, the text is easy, but that's what to expect from a book written by a soldier. The text is
easy to read and express well what's going on in the head of a special force. I suggest this book to anybody that want to know more about what's going on behind the war scene.
