Pressestimmen

“Chris Kyle tells his story with the same courage and grit he displayed in life and on the battlefield. American Sniper is a compelling read.” (CLINT EASTWOOD)

“An amazingly detailed account of fighting in Iraq--a humanizing, brave story that’s extremely readable.” (PATRICIA CORNWELL, New York Times Book Review)

“In the elite community of warriors, one man has risen above our ranks and distinguished himself as unique. Chris Kyle is that man. A master sniper, Chris has done and seen things that will be talked about for generations to come.” (MARCUS LUTTRELL, author of Lone Survivor)

“Chris Kyle was incredible, the most celebrated war hero of our time, a true American hero in every sense of the word.” (D Magazine)

“The raw and unforgettable narrative of the making of our country’s record-holding sniper, Chris Kyle’s memoir is a powerful book, both in terms of combat action and human drama. Chief Kyle is a true American warrior down to the bone, the Carlos Hathcock of a new generation.” (CHARLES W. SASSER, Green Beret (US Army Ret.) and author of One Shot, One Kill)

“Reads like a first-person thriller narrated by a sniper. The bare-bones facts are stunning. .... A first-rate military memoir.” (BOOKLIST)

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (No Source)

American Sniper is the inside story of what it’s like to be in war. A brave warrior and patriot, Chris Kyle writes frankly about the missions, personal challenges, and hard choices that are part of daily life of an elite SEAL Sniper. It’s a classic!” (RICHARD MARCINKO (USN, Ret.), First Commanding Officer of SEAL Team Six and #1 bestselling author of Rogue Warrior)

Buchrückseite

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.

Als USA-Fan habe ich mich sehr auf das Buch gefreut und es hat sich gelohnt.
Er ist sehr patriotisch geschrieben, aber wer die USA kennt, weiß das die Menschen eine andere Einstellung haben als wir, besonders in Texas, aber das kann jeder finden wie er will.
Es zeigt genau seine Sicht und er verschönert nichts, sondern schildert es so wie es ist, schrecklich und brutal. Es war Krieg und er wurde ausgebildet um seine Kameraden zu schützen und das hat er getan. Wie man das nun bewertet ist jedem selbst überlassen.
Ich habe das Buch regelrecht verschlungen.

I've bought this book, the memorial edition, out of my interest in experiences of modern warfare as described by those directly involved. I believe that men like Chris Kyle, who are willing to record their personal story in a no-nonsense and straightforward manner, have an important message to tell. People who have no idea whatsoever of what modern warfare consists of and what it means for the boots on the ground as well as for their families, but who are interested in gaining some insight, might benefit from open-mindedly taking in the information that is transmitted in books such as this one.
Even though people in war-free western societies might have some reservations in being confronted with the realities of warfare, for many people on our planet these are the realities of life, and as such are deserving of (at least) our contemplation. One important feature in Chris Kyle's story is the survival of his humanity after what he experienced in Irak. The clear line he seems to have drawn between right and wrong, "black and white without too many shades of grey" as that may have been according to his own words, in life as a civilian and as a Navy Seal, may well have contributed to this. The fact that he lost his life while trying to assist fellow veterans in their transition to civilian life is to my opinion however, especially after listening to him speak in televised interviews on youtube and reading this memorial edition cover-to-cover, testimony that his worldview may not have been as black and white as he would have had everyone believe.
My impression is that Chris Kyle stood up for what he believed was the right thing to do under any and all circumstances. A humble man of character with a determination to serve humanity. His is a story well worth reading and being remembered.

erfüllt alle Klischees eines in den Südstaaten aufgewachsenen Amerikaners, der krampfhaft versucht sein Tun zu rechtfertigen. Rest in peace dear!

Von Jason Raasch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book shortly after viewing the film. When i got home from the theater I spent the next several hours googling Mr. Kyle and was impressed to learn that the proceeds of this book were ALL being used to help vets. I'd strongly encourage reading this book as much of the books events, as often is the case, were omitted from the film. Be sure to do some research of your own on this individual, as I think you'll find him to be an exceptional model human being with core values that are often lost in today's society.

Von Capt Rulo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I wish I would have read the book first before watching the film. Some inaccuracies with the film or complete sequences that were skipped which played an important role in Chief Kyle's journey.

I enjoy the humor (twisted or not) sprinkled throughout the book. It gives you a no BS view of the world through a SEAL's eyes. His descriptions of BUDS and being overseas gives you a great visual for what it is like to be in those situations.

Towards the end of the book, it starts to change from a first hand account of events to a more personal opinion about his personal life, military life, and the people encountered in between.

Definitely an entertaining read. Keep in mind, it is a book written by a Navy SEAL, not a John Grisham novel so writing style may not match the gravity of the stories told. They are all important though for an American military legend.

I was surprised that it wasn't "gory". It's a very readable story. His humor is great. I live in the southwest and appreciate the digs. I loved that his wife also contributed to the book. It was at times not always easy to listen to what was going on in Kyle's mind. I saw the movie; it was very good. But the book is outstanding and better than the movie.

I enjoyed the story. One helluva hero. The writing was very elementary. That was a distraction. Just a shade above a grade schooler's essay on how I spent my summer vacation.
A case could almost be built that Chris Kyle had a killing addiction. But he put it to good use supporting our military guys on the ground.
And then we have the Academy Awards Ceremony, the height of hypocrisy, where the snoty, snooty self centered snobs of Hollywood stand and aggrandize themselves and others in their business. Where they make mega millions playing fake and fictional heroes that can dispatch a dozen armed thugs with or with out a weapon. They then stand up there and spew out their liberal clap trap about anti-war and anti-gun rhetoric and don't take the time to pay tribute to a real hero, Chris Kyle, that single handedly saved hundreds and even thousands of American GIs and Marines in his four deployments over in the Middle East.

HASH(0x967648b8) von 5 Sternen Chris Kyle: A true American patriot! 6. August 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What can I say, I loved the book. The book is well written, easy to follow and about as down to earth as anyone can get. Chris (rest his soul) was a just a fascinating individual. His tail of dedication, patriotism and sacrifice will hit your heart like few things ever could. His continual humor and heart felt honesty will keep you riveted to the pages. It is a clear, unobscured look at the soul of this elite warrior. My words will never adequately convey just how good this book truly is.
