The Navy Seals are absolutely the greatest fighting force the world has ever seen. Chris Kyle tells the story behind the media facade of the American servicemen in the Special Teams in a frank, unapologetic way; This is not a book for the squeamish.
His comments around his legendary service record are a tough read as he includes the uncomfortable details that most autobiographies leave out. He is not a perfect soldier, but he is clearly smart and effective. Kyle's respect and commitment to his brothers-in-arms is inspiring and comes out very strong in every chapter.
Sections written by his wife add important detail to how his long deployments in dangerous places affected their young family and how they adapted and supported each other.
I got tired of the narrator's "John Wayne" accent. It was a bit cliche.
