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.

The widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle shares their private story: an unforgettable testament to the power of love and faith in the face of war and unimaginable loss--and a moving tribute to a man whose true heroism ran even deeper than the legend In early 2013, Taya Kyle and her husband Chris were the happiest they ever had been. Their decade-long marriage had survived years of war that took Chris, a U.S. Navy SEAL, away from Taya and their two children for agonizingly long stretches while he put his life on the line in many major battles of the Iraq War. After struggling to readjust to life out of the military, Chris had found new purpose in redirecting his lifelong dedication to service to supporting veterans and their families. Their love had deepened, and, most special of all, their family was whole, finally. Then, the unthinkable. On February 2, 2013, Chris and his friend Chad Littlefield were killed while attempting to help a troubled vet. The life Chris and Taya fought so hard to build together was shattered. In an instant, Taya became a single parent of two. A widow. A young woman facing the rest of her life without the man she loved. Chris and Taya’s remarkable story has captivated millions through Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster, Academy Award-winning film American Sniper, starring Bradley Cooper as Chris and Sienna Miller as Taya, and because of Chris’s bestselling memoir, in which Taya contributed passages that formed the book’s emotional core. Now, with trusted collaborator Jim DeFelice, Taya writes in never-before-told detail about the hours, days, and months after his shocking death when grief threatened to overwhelm her. Then there were wearying battles to protect her husband’s legacy and reputation. And yet throughout, friendship, family, and a deepening faith were lifelines that sustained her and the kids when the sorrow became too much. Two years after her husband’s tragic death, Taya has found renewed meaning and connection to Chris by advancing their shared mission of “serving those who serve others,” particularly military and first-responder families. She and the children now are embracing a new future, one that honors the past but also looks forward with hope, gratitude, and joy. American Wife is one of the most remarkable memoirs of the year -- a universal chronicle of love and heartbreak, service and sacrifice, faith and purpose that will inspire every reader.

Chris Kyle—fallen hero and #1 bestselling author of American Sniper—reveals how ten legendary guns forever changed U.S. history. At the time of his tragic death in February 2013, former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the top sniper in U.S. military history, was finishing one of the most exciting missions of his life: a remarkable book that retold American history through the lens of a hand-selected list of firearms. Kyle masterfully shows how guns have played a fascinating, indispensable, and often underappreciated role in our national story. "Perhaps more than any other nation in the world," Kyle writes, "the history of the United States has been shaped by the gun. Firearms secured the first Europeans' hold on the continent, opened the frontier, helped win our independence, settled the West, kept law and order, and defeated tyranny across the world." Drawing on his unmatched firearms knowledge and combat experience, Kyle carefully chose ten guns to help tell his story: the American long rifle, Spencer repeater, Colt .45 revolver, Winchester rifle, Springfield 1903 rifle, Thompson sub-machine gun, 1911 pistol, M1 Garand, .38 Special police revolver, and the M-16 rifle platform Kyle himself used as a SEAL. Through them, he revisits thrilling turning points in American history, including the single sniper shot that turned the tide of the Revolutionary War, the firearms designs that proved decisive at Gettysburg, the "gun that won the West," and the weapons that gave U.S. soldiers an edge in the world wars and beyond. This is also the story of how firearms innovation, creativity, and industrial genius has constantly pushed American history—and power—forward. Filled with an unforgettable cast of characters, Chris Kyle's American Gun is a sweeping epic of bravery, adventure, invention, and sacrifice.

In a stunning new Byliner Original, Anthony Swofford, former Marine Corps sniper and bestselling author of “Jarhead,” tells the story of the life and shocking death of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. It is also the first account of the troubled life of Kyle’s alleged murderer, a former Marine who managed to succeed where countless Iraqi insurgents had failed. Known as the deadliest sniper in American military history, Kyle was credited with 160 kills—a record of dispatch that led Iraqi fighters to tag him with the nickname “the Devil of Ramadi” and place a $20,000 bounty on his head. During four tours in Iraq, Kyle was shot twice, survived six IED attacks, and was awarded the Bronze Star and the Silver Star a combined seven times. Among his fellow soldiers he was legendary, a hero who saved lives even as he, in the words of one Navy SEAL, “killed more people than smallpox.” Kyle thrived at war, eventually chronicling his exploits in his own bestseller, “American Sniper,” a blood-soaked and unapologetic account of dealing death in Iraq. Like so many veterans, however, he faced personal demons when he left the military. With the insight and sensitivity that only a soldier can have, Swofford probes Kyle’s return from the excitement of war to the mundane realities of civilian life. “Was he perfectly adjusted to the stark reality of how he had achieved his fame?” Swofford wonders. “Had he really been able to kill that many men and feel no guilt?” By the end of his life, however, Kyle appeared to have discovered a new vocation ministering to traumatized vets, which, in a painfully tragic irony, led to his fateful trip to a Texas shooting range in February. Death of an “American Sniper” is an empathetic and knowing account of a soldier’s life, as well as a thoughtful examination of the war-shattered man who confessed to his murder. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Anthony Swofford is the author of the memoirs “Jarhead” and “Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails” and the novel “Exit A.” A film adaptation of “Jarhead,” directed by Sam Mendes, was released in 2005. Swofford’s writing has appeared in “Harper’s,” “The New York Times Magazine,” and many other places. He has taught at the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop and Lewis and Clark College. He is currently at work on a new novel and is developing a dramatic television series for HBO. PRAISE FOR ANTHONY SWOFFORD’S “JARHEAD”: “A bayonet in the eye … brutal and unforgettable.” —The Sacramento Bee “A searing contribution to the literature of combat.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “A brutally honest memoir … gut-wrenching frontline reportage.” —Entertainment Weekly “An unflinching portrayal of the loneliness and brutality of modern warfare and sophisticated analyses of—and visceral reactions to—its politics.” —Publishers Weekly
