Excellent book. Every American should read this at some point. It gives amazing insight into the difficulties faced by the American military and the men make it out. Chris Kyle analyzes why and how he does what he does, the challenges faced in balancing his life with his family, and how he views himself in the "big picture." Great read. ( )

A bit repetitive, but clearly reveling the angst in the life of a SEAL, a father, and a patriot. ( )

Het sensationele verhaal van de dodelijkste sluipschutter van Amerika

Navy SEAL Chris Kyle heeft tijdens zijn carrière van 1999 tot 2009 honderdvijftig officiële kills op zijn naam staan en is daarmee de dodelijkste sluipschutter van de vs. In Sniper vertelt hij hoe hij als rodeorijdende plattelandsjongen wordt opgemerkt door een officier van de seals.
Door zijn geniale schietvaardigheid mag hij trainen met de beste soldaten van Amerika. Sniper leest als een razendsnelle thriller over Kyles genadeloze opleiding tot sluipschutter, de gruwelijkheden waar hij mee wordt geconfronteerd, het plannen en uitvoeren van complexe missies en de moed, de verbroedering maar ook de jaloezie binnen de gelederen.
American Sniper werd verfilmd, met Clint Eastwood als regisseur en hoofdrollen voor Bradley Cooper en Sienna Miller.

I dedicate this book to  my wife, Taya, and my kids for sticking it out with me.  Thanks for still being here when I got home.

I's also like to dedicate it to the memory of my SEAL brothers Marc and Ryan, for their courageous service to our country and their undying friendship to me.  I will bleed for their deaths the rest of my life.
First words
