American Sniper: A Review Of Former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle's Book

Joshua Sinai at the Washington Times wrote an interesting review of American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. History.

"One shot, one kill" is the creed of military snipers. For those in elite warfare units such as the U.S. Navy SEALs, the additional skill of being able to quietly infiltrate an enemy's area undetected in order to deliver precision fire is mandatory. Working in proximity to where adversaries are operating, and being expected to survive in order to be deployed to additional firefights, is a given.

"American Sniper" is retired Navy SEAL Chris Kyle's gripping and dramatic account of how he became the deadliest sniper in U.S. history with 160 officially confirmed "kills" in the Iraq War from 2003 to 2009.

  1. This book had me entrigued by how Chris Kyle saw things that most people would be in shock. Excellent and vivid accounts that most of us in the military can relate. Dark events in history but with a twist of humor to it from his point of view.
