9780062238863 The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwoodâ€™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 â€œThe Legendâ€; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (â€œthe devilâ€) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of warâ€”including the deaths of two close SEAL teammatesâ€”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, Kyleâ€™s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.
