Let me begin with, I get e-mails about up-coming military related books almost every day but this one caught my attention.
The book is an autobiography of SEAL Chief Chris Kyle, who is the record-holding sniper in U.S. military history. Kyle has more than 150 officially confirmed kills (the previous American record was 109), though his remarkable career total has not been made public by the Pentagon. In his ten years (1999-2009) with the United States Navy SEAL Teams, Chris was deployed four times to Iraq and was awarded the two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars with Valor. Chris was shot on two separate occasions and was in numerous IED explosions. Despite numerous wounds and an injury to his knee that eventually required surgery, Chris remained with his unit during combat. While in Ramadi it was learned that Chris had a bounty put on his head by local insurgents. His nickname, given to him by the terrorists, was Al Shatan–the Devil. His fellow SEALs had begun referring to him by a different name: The Legend. “The raw and unforgettable narrative of the making of our country’s record-holding sniper, Chris Kyle’s memoir is a powerful book, both in terms of combat action and human drama. Chief Kyle is a true American warrior down to the bone, the Carlos Hathcock of a new generation.”—CHARLES W. SASSER, Green Beret (U.S. Army Ret.) and author of “One Shot, One Kill”.
Other than hitting Harper up for a copy of the book, I promise that I’m not getting any piece of the action (same with any of my recommendations)…I just think it’s going to be one hell of a story. The book goes on sale today.
