    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.

    What did you love best about American Sniper?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I got tired of the narrator's "John Wayne" accent. It was a bit cliche.
