Overview

A celebration of the remarkable life and legacy of fallen American hero Chris Kyle.

This commemorative memorial edition of Kyle's bestselling memoir features the full text of American Sniper, plus more than eighty ­pages of remembrances by those whose lives he touched personally—including his wife, Taya; his parents, brother, and children; Marcus Luttrell and other fellow Navy SEALs; veterans and wounded warriors; lifelong friends; and many others.

He was the top American sniper of all time, called "the legend" by his navy seal brothers, and a hero by those he served with on the home front . . .

From 1999 to 2009, Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle's account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the greatest war memoirs of all time. American Sniper also honors Kyle's fellow warriors, who raised hell on and off the battlefield. And in moving first-person accounts throughout, Kyle's wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their marriage and children.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Chris Kyle authored two coast-to-coast bestsellers, but he only lived to see one published. His American Gun was in final proofs in February when this former elite Navy SEAL sharpshooter was shot and killed by a fellow military veteran. This special memorial edition of his autobiography American Sniper contains 50 pages of new material, including an epilogue; a foreword by his widow Tara; remembrances from friends and former SEAL teammates; and never-before-published photographs. Battlefield bravery and one great loss.

Patricia Cornwell
[My] favorite book of the year. Chris Kyle’s American Sniper is an amazingly detailed account of fighting in Iraq -- a humanizing, brave story that’s extremely readable.””

    Highly Recommended

    It was interesting to read about Chris Kyle's early life and how it shaped his values, and then to learn about what it took to become a Navy SEAL. It gave me a much greater appreciation for what it takes to reach that level of service to our country. I found the description of his difficult transition from Warrior to Family Man and Resource to our returning troops to be an incredible journey. It would have been an honor to have met him had I been given that opportunity.

    This is a must read.

    If you ever wanted to know the mindset of our soldiers, their courage and how they see patriotism as a part of who they are: (isn't everyone)? This is a touching, feelings filled book of the life of the courageous men and women that put their lives on the line, so that we remain, the home of the strong and the free. Now matter how you feel about the politics of war, you must read this to understand it's not all political, there are men and women dying for us. This book gives a shout out and a salute to all of them. God Bless Them.

    One of the Best American Military History/BIO Books I have ever Read!

    I have read hundreds of military history books from across the world. This is one of the most touching and thought provoking ones I have read. Chris Kyle was a great man and a great warrior, he always put his humanity first, however. I CANNOT recommend this highly enough. All of the Kyle family proceeds go to veterans charities and help to continue the work he started.
