The Life and Legend of Chris Kyle: American Sniper, Navy SEAL | [Michael J. Mooney]

The Life and Legend of Chris Kyle: American Sniper, Navy SEAL

Journalist Michael J. Mooney reveals the life story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the American Sniper, from his Texas childhood up through his death in February 2013. A brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband, Kyle led the life of an American hero and legend. His heroism and reputation in the military service earned him the nickname "the devil" among insurgents and the nickname The Legend among his SEAL brethren, but his impact extended beyond that after he came home, through his work with fellow veterans.

Journalist Michael J. Mooney reveals the life story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the American Sniper, from his Texas childhood up through his death in February 2013. A brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband, Kyle led the life of an American hero and legend. His heroism and reputation in the military service earned him the nickname "the devil" among insurgents and the nickname The Legend among his SEAL brethren, but his impact extended beyond that after he came home, through his work with fellow veterans.

    "Ok"

    I have read American Sniper before I read this book. With that being said my expectation of the book was higher than I have received. It's a good book of you are going to read it before you read American Sniper.

    Story
    "True American Hero"

    Chris Kyle was a shining example of a selfless and honorable man of extraordinary skill and tenacity on the battlefield and yet an amazing sense of humility and self deprecation in life in general. He was the kind of man who our young people should know about as a wonderful example of a true patriot. This short essay by Michael Mooney reflects those attributes to the letter.
