Format: Kindle Edition
Chris Kyle served four tours of duty in Operation Iraqi Freedom, making 160 confirmed kills of enemy soldiers and insurgents. In this biography, Kyle begins by describing his early life, his decision to join the Navy, and the courtship of his wife, Taya. The narrative then alternates between Kyle's military experiences and his home life with Taya and their children.

Kyle's descriptions of training and camaraderie in his Navy SEAL unit are similar to those from other military biographies. The training is hard, the participants are tough, and the officers in the "head shed" have them do some stupid things. The deployment sections of the book describe battle with Iraqi insurgents and the tactics that do and don't work against them. Kyle gives names when praising heroic actions of his fellow soldiers and uses unflattering labels when describing those for whom he has less respect. Don't miss what he says about "Runaway." Kyle comes across as a true solder--capable, patriotic, loyal to his comrades, and ferocious to his enemies. The enemies include opponents in bar fights as well as the Iraqis. We remember more than once that soldiers are very young as well as very brave.

The domestic segments of the book are less exciting, but have a depth not found in the combat stories. Kyle has trouble transitioning to his stateside life. And his wife has trouble understanding the war he leaves behind--and feels he must return to. His personal code of loyalty to "God, country, family" in that order is only a little different from Taya's. Why can't he move his family up to second place? We watch them go through the same growth struggles that all couples experience along with the unique challenges imposed by wartime military service.

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.

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.

I've read many military autobiographies, and this one is easily up there with the best. I couldn't put it down!

You can tell when someone digs down deep and writes from the heart, or when they ramble on into a tape recorder and transcribe what was said afterward. For me, this read was the latter. The content was very superficial, the prose pedestrian and the experience unfulfilled. A good autobio should provide you with an in-depth look into the author or the events they write about. This book did neither.

Loved the conversational nature and the honest tone. So sorry that Chris is no longer with us. A true hero.
