Synopsis

The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster movie which was nominated for six academy awards, including best picture.

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 “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates—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, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

This book was amazing! The author narrates his story and at first I thought it was a bit much with all his ego being portrayed....but I kept reading and was able to move past it and was not sorry! I could not put this down.

A 'no holds barred' account of a modern 'spartan warrior',whose military service is exemplary. More touching is his internal battle f devotion between his team and family, ultimately such a well rounded man and one who is an example to us all.

OK book on SEALS
January 15th, 2014
A good book even though I found that the writing style was somewhat bland and not very engaging. No Easy Day seemed much more exciting and gripping of a story. I must say that the death of Chris Kyle was an absolute tragedy and I am still glad to have read his story.
