At the time of his tragic death in February 2013, former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most accomplished sniper in U.S. military history, was finishing a remarkable book that retold American history through the lens of a hand-selected list of firearms. Kyle masterfully argues that guns have played a fascinating, indispensable, and often under-appreciated role in our national story.
Kyle carefully chose ten guns to help tell his story, including the American long rifle, Colt .45 revolver, Winchester rifle, .38 police handgun, and M-16 rifle platform Kyle himself used as a SEAL. This is also the story of how American innovation, creativity, and industrial genius has constantly pushed technology - and U.S. power - forward.

Enjoyed thoroughly. Always loved firearms and history, good combination of both through a well put together narrative; educational and fun.
I enjoyed the history and stories about great American firearms. Interesting look into a hero's mind and his thoughts pertaining to iconic guns.
I love reading and find audiobooks help me get more reading in each week than I ever would if I didn't use them. I also enjoy the dramatizations and voices some narrators use.
I have read many books on guns and this was the most fun. I loved every min.
CPT L US Army.
This book covers history and how the gun not only shaped this county but the world and for the better. If it would not for the gun in a brave persons hand the world would be very different.
This was brisk and really enjoyable. Excellent narrator and interesting selection of guns. Highly recommended for both history and firearms enthusiasts.
easy read, historically accurate, patriotic
