The life story of Chris Kyle, the American Sniper
Journalist Michael J. Mooney reveals the life story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the American Sniper, from his Texas childhood up through his death in February 2013.
A brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband, Kyle led the life of an American hero and legend. His heroism and reputation in the military service earned him the nickname "the devil" among insurgents and the nickname The Legend among his SEAL brethren, but his impact extended beyond that after he came home, through his work with fellow veterans.
Mooney also sheds light on the life of the suffering fellow veteran who killed Kyle and interviews those closest to the late SEAL. The Life and Legend of Chris Kyle is an honest portrayal of the life of a man whose memorial service brought thousands of people to Cowboys Stadium--the most celebrated war hero of our time.

We owe so much to our military and their families for making the unknowable sacrifices that benefit this great country and it's citizenry. Men like Chris Kyle, Adam Brown and countless others harness their courage, fears, sense of duty and love of their country and most of all the love for their brothers and sisters in arms to accomplish things that provide us all with the freedom to pursue our own dreams. This book is an excellent reminder of what our military teaches: that you can become more than you ever thought yourself capable of if you believe and persevere through adversity.
I pray that we will apply this principle in our lives and pursuits. That we will honor our military heroes and their sacrifices in pursuit of our own personal perfection and thus make ourselves worthy of the sacrifices that our heroes have made in our country's name.
Please reach out to those military men and women in any way you can. We can never repay the debt fully but we can at least make a small down payment.
God bless our Chris Kyle and his family and all of our military heroes.
Chris Kyle was my hero as a teenager and now in adulthood, I still consider him my biggest hero. Great tribute to a fallen hero!
CHRIS KYLE MAN OF MANY WORDS!
I happen to know a few veterans where I volunteer at, reading his "American Sniper: Memorial Edition" makes me feel for them. Taya you are a strong woman!
