Description
A New York Times bestseller: The life story of Chris Kyle, the American Sniper. A brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband, Chris Kyle led the life of an American hero. His renowned courage and skill in military service earned him two nicknames — The Devil among insurgents and The Legend among his Navy SEAL brethren — but his impact extended beyond that after he came home from combat and began working with fellow veterans. Journalist Michael J. Mooney reveals Kyle's life story, from his Texas childhood up through his death in February 2013. Mooney interviews those closest to the late SEAL and also sheds light on the life of the suffering veteran who killed Kyle. The Life and Legend of Chris Kyle is a candid, essential portrait of a celebrated warrior — a man about whom a movie has only added to the legend.

        July 8, 2013
        Chris Kyle was a war hero, author of a memoir (American Sniper) and a history of the U.S. (American Gun), and a veteran dedicated to helping others like him cope with PTSD. The most lethal sniper in American military history, Kyle had survived multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, yet he would ultimately meet his end just miles away from his home and family in Texas. On February 2, 2013, the 38-year-old retired Navy SEAL and father of two was shot and killed by a troubled vet whom he had taken to a shooting range to let off some steam. This hastily penned e-book tells Kyle's story, but like his life, it's far too brief. There are few details of Kyle's military service, and only fleeting glimpses into his childhood and upbringing. Mooney, a staff writer for D Magazine, had been interviewing Kyle for a long-read magazine article, which might explain the book's brevity. But other than the scenes from Kyle's funeral (which include a heart-wrenching eulogy by his wife, Taya), there's little here that Kyle hadn't already addressed in his own memoir. And there remains the question of what will happen to the perpetrator. He is in custody, that much is known. This is the ending that needs to be written. But it hasn't happened yet. Agent: David Patterson, Foundry Literary + Media.
