American Sniper Book Description:

The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster movie which was nominated for six academy awards, including best picture. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates—and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

American sniper Book Description:

Chris Kyle est le sniper le plus redoutable de toute l'histoire militaire américaine. Surnommé « Al-Shaitan » (le Diable) par ceux qu'il traquait et « la Légende » par ses frères d'armes des Navy SEALs, il est crédité de 255 ennemis tués. Déployé à quatre reprises en Irak dans le cadre de l'opération Iraqi Freedom, il a été engagé dans les combats urbains les plus terribles du conflit : Fallouja, Ramadi ou encore Sadr City. Progressant au cœur des fournaises insurgées, investissant les maisons en tête des groupes d'assaut, protégeant ses camarades depuis son poste de tir, pris pour cible par les insurgés qui mirent sa tête à prix, Chris Kyle a été de toutes les batailles. Témoin des atrocités de la guerre et de la malveillance d'un ennemi fanatique, il livre un récit brut et dévoile au grand public son quotidien de SEAL et de sniper, mais aussi les conséquences de celui-ci sur sa vie personnelle.

He loved to hunt and ride horses and would have been a cowboy if he had not become a member of the Navy Sea, Air, Land Teams (SEAL). He had a lot of fun hunting with his mom, dad, and brother as a child. His dad and brother were his best friends growing up. Kyle learned true patience by learning to break a horse. He got involved in rodeo competitions to quench his thirst for being a cowboy. In 1992, he graduated and went to Tarleton State University with aspirations to join the military afterward. An accident in his freshman year ended his rodeo career when he had to have pins put in his wrist. He became a ranch hand for a man named David Landrum while he was still a student. Landrum’s strict expectations made Kyle want to prove himself. Kyle believes this prepared him to become a Navy SEAL. Kyle decided to quit school and join the military. He learned about the SEALs and wanted to become one. He investigated the opportunity further and learned that there was no guarantee he would become a SEAL if he joined the Navy. He would need to earn the privilege. Kyle went through the application process, but the Navy disqualified him because of the pins in his wrist. He felt his military career had ended before it began. He went back to work for Landrum and hoped to become a rancher. Shortly afterward, a recruiter called and asked if he was still interested in becoming a SEAL.
