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.

Review "The raw and unforgettable narrative of the making of our country's record-holding sniper, Chris Kyle's memoir is a powerful book, both in terms of combat action and human drama. Chief Kyle is a true American warrior down to the bone, the Carlos Hathcock of a new generation." --CHARLES W. SASSER, Green Beret (US Army Ret.) and author of "One Shot, One Kill" Product 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 Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, 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. A native Texan who learned to shoot on childhood hunting trips with his father, Kyle was a champion saddle-bronc rider prior to joining the Navy. After 9/11, he was thrust onto the front lines of the War on Terror, and soon found his calling as a world-class sniper who performed best under fire. He recorded a personal-record 2,100-yard kill shot outside Baghdad; in Fallujah, Kyle braved heavy fire to rescue a group of Marines trapped on a street; in Ramadi, he stared down insurgents with his pistol in close combat. Kyle talks honestly about the pain of war—of twice being shot and experiencing the tragic deaths of two close friends. American Sniper also honors Kyles fellow warriors, who raised hell on and off the battlefield. And in moving first-person accounts throughout, Kyles wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their marriage and children, as well as on Chris. Adrenaline-charged and deeply personal, American Sniper is a thrilling eyewitness account of war that only one man could tell.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. American Sniper by Chris Kyle - A 20-minute Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary:Chapter 1 Kyle grew up in central Texas. He loved to hunt and ride horses and would have been a cowboy if he had not become a member of the Navy Sea, Air, Land Teams (SEAL). He had a lot of fun hunting with his mom, dad, and brother as a child. His dad and brother were his best friends growing up. Kyle learned true patience by learning to break a horse. He got involved in rodeo competitions to quench his thirst for being a cowboy. In 1992, he graduated and went to Tarleton State University with aspirations to join the military afterward. An accident in his freshman year ended his rodeo career when he had to have pins put in his wrist. He became a ranch hand for a man named David Landrum while he was still a student. Landrum’s strict expectations made Kyle want to prove himself. Kyle believes this prepared him to become a Navy SEAL. Kyle decided to quit school and join the military. He learned about the SEALs and wanted to become one. He investigated the opportunity further and learned that there was no guarantee he would become a SEAL if he joined the Navy. He would need to earn the privilege. Kyle went through the application process, but the Navy disqualified him because of the pins in his wrist. He felt his military career had ended before it began. He went back to work for Landrum and hoped to become a rancher. Shortly afterward, a recruiter called and asked if he was still interested in becoming a SEAL.

Auf einmal stand da eine Armee . . . SEAL-Team 10: eine Elitetruppe. Die Mission: einen Al-Qaida-Führer zur Strecke bringen. Der Feind: Dutzende zu allem entschlossene Taliban-Kämpfer. Vier SEALs gegen eine ganze Armee. Und dann bricht die Hölle los. Die Army schickt Helikopter zur Verstärkung. Neunzehn Männer kommen um, ein einziger kehrt zurück. Dies ist sein Bericht. In einer sternenklaren Nacht im späten Juni 2005 verlassen vier US Navy SEALs ihre Basis im nördlichen Afghanistan in Richtung pakistanische Grenze. Ihr Auftrag: Gefangennahme oder Tötung eines hochrangigen Al-Qaida-Führers, der mit Osama bin Laden operieren und sich in den Bergen versteckt halten soll . . . Lone Survivor ist die Geschichte von Marcus Luttrell, des einzigen Überlebenden der Operation Red Wings. Nicht nur seine drei Kameraden sterben im Gefecht mit einer unterschätzten gegnerischen Truppe, auch die komplette Besatzung des Special-Operations-Aviation-Regiments, das zur Rettung per Hubschrauber losgeschickt wurde, findet den Tod. Nur dank der Hilfe von Einheimischen, die ihn aufnehmen, pflegen und vor den Taliban beschützen, überlebt der schwer verletzte Luttrell. Seine Geschichte handelt von Angst, Tod und grenzenlosem Leid, aber auch von Mut und Treue, von Freundschaft und Hoffnung – und von dem unbedingten Willen zu überleben

Seine Kameraden nennen ihn »Legende«, seine Feinde »Teufel« ... Chris Kyle diente von 1999 bis 2009 bei den US Navy SEALs und verzeichnete in jener Zeit den höchsten »Bodycount« – also die höchste Zahl an tödlichen Treffern – in der amerikanischen Militärgeschichte. 160 gezielte Liquidationen schreibt ihm das Pentagon offiziell zu. In dieser eindringlichen Autobiografie erzählt der geborene Texaner, der schon als Kind auf Jagdausflügen mit seinem Vater das Schießen lernte, die Geschichte seiner außergewöhnlichen Karriere. Nach dem 11. September 2001 wurde er im Kampf gegen den Terror an die Front geschickt und fand kurze Zeit später seine Berufung als Scharfschütze. Hart und ehrlich redet Kyle über die Schattenseiten des Krieges und das brutale Handwerk des Tötens. Seine Frau Taya kommt in bewegenden Einschüben zu Wort, in denen sie schildert, wie der Krieg sich nicht nur auf ihre Ehe und ihre Kinder auswirkte, sondern auch auf ihren Mann. Sniper ist das Psychogramm eines staatlich legitimierten Todesschützen und ein fesselnder Augenzeugenbericht aus dem Krieg, den nur ein Mann erzählen kann.
