First Commanding Officer of SEAL Team Six and #1 bestselling author of Rogue Warrior ) From the Back Cover 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. See all Product Description
