Description


He is the deadliest American sniper ever, called "the devil" by the enemies he hunted and "the legend" by his Navy SEAL brothers . . .

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyle's kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared him so much they placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow U.S. warriors, 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.

About the Author


SEAL Team 3 chief Chris Kyle (1974-2013) served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom, during which he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, and numerous other citations. His memoir, American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History, is being made into a major motion picture. He lived with his family in Texas.

Scott McEwen is a trial lawyer in San Diego.

Jim DeFelice is the author of Omar Bradley: General at War, the first in-depth critical biography of America's last five-star general. He also writes a number of acclaimed military thrillers, including the Rogue Warrior series with Richard Marcinko, founder of SEAL Team 6, and the novels in the Dreamland series with Dale Brown.
