The Fighting Man: Sgt. York to Chris KyleAs I write this review, Kyle's story has made cinemagraphic history. According to some movie reviewers, it is the most popular war film ever produced. Having seen the movie and read the book, I concur that the movie accurately portrays the man and his mission. Possibly had Kyle lived to see how his story worked out (his life was taken by a possibly-deranged former soldier even as he was trying to help him overcome his mental problems), he would have just shrugged and said something like "That's how it goes." The autobiography reveals an unassuming Texan who grew up with good but simple values, was a rodeo rider for a time, and came from a family of hunters and outdoorsmen. His style of writing (with the assistance of a ghost writer) reminds me of Gary Cooper's portrayal in film of Sgt. York in World War I. Both were crack shots and both saw the killing of other men as necessary to saving the lives of America's soldiers. Kyle describes his training in the SEALs, and declares he was never the best shot in the outfit. Indeed, he makes clear all the things that go into the making of a good sniper, much of it having to do with a knowledge of maneuver, patience, and what might be called "the buddy system." His language will seem raw to some, but life among foot-soldiers is harsh, hardening, and even requires a peculiar sense of humor. As for Kyle's devotion to his wife and family, it is stated simply and believably. That he should die trying to save another soldier fits in with his values and beliefs. He is to the twenty-first century what Sgt. York was to the twentieth.4True? False? Who cares? Great book.Yes, I know that most of the numbers have been said to be wildly exaggerated. And yes, I've heard all the angles on how this was a piece of propaganda secretly designed as a recruitment tool. I'd heard all of that before reading the book and still loved it. Even if only 25% of this book is true, he's still 100% more of a bad*** than most of the men in this country. It's refreshing to read a book that isn't written to the soft-spoken, skinny jeans wearing, safe-space retreating hyper-feminine men that seem to be all you see through the media eye. The dude was a soldier, period, and soldiers represent one of the last pockets of self-sacrificing bravery in our culture (both men and women). This book represents the horror of war, the dedication of our military, the courageous families they leave behind, and the ignorance of anyone that threatens our way of life in America.4Book and Movie are DifferentBook is a pretty detailed version of Kyle's experiences in Iraq, and it's a good read. Movie is more of a summary of Kyle's 4 tours in Iraq, and adds a lot of embellishments and untruths into the Kyle story (Hollywood does this for more dramatic effects). That being said, the book received a lot of criticisms about Kyle making up a lot of stories to turn himself into more of a "Legend" than he really was. Such criticisms included Kyle taking out Looters in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina; this was not discussed in this book. Neither was the criticism of the alleged Jesse Ventura episode, where Kyle supposedly punched the former governor in the face. None of this was discussed in this book or at least the version I read. Maybe the publishers took those stories out in this version due to the criticisms and the subsequent defamation lawsuit filed by Ventura. I don't know. Anyway, this book is a good read, and, in my opinion, a better depiction of Kyle than the Eastwood movie version.4He Took Great Pride In What He DidThis kindlebook of The American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History by Chris Kyle with Scott McEwen and Jim De Felice caught my attention partially because I am fortunate to have seen this the American Sniper film starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle when it was released in theaters and Sienna Miller as his wife Taya Kyle. In the kindlebook Chris Kyle explains some of the multiple factors that influenced his decision to join the U.S. Navy and enter their Navy Seals program. Chris Kyle also explains how he met his wife Taya Kyle, his lifestyle growing up, the fitness regimen he kept after he was accepted into the Navy Seals program, and more. I admit that the way that he described Taya Kyle with much love indirectly influenced my decision to purchase a kindlebook version of Taya Kyle s memoir. It is eerie that this American Sniper autobiography was released as listed via online sources on January 2, 2012 yet it is far from my place to call it providence and I concur with the others who feel for Taya Kyle and her children.5One of the better first person accounts of the current crusades in the Middle East.Now I can watch the movie.I gave the book 5 stars, but that doesn t mean it s perfect. This is the original version of the book that contains the Punching Out Scruff Face section, which has been deleted from subsequent versions of the book after Jesse Ventura sued the author and publisher for defamation, and won. That s an indication that other parts of the narrative could be embellishments, or exaggerations, or just plain misleading through bad communication. For instance on page 314 the narrative says Fort Irwin is in San Bernardino. Yes, Fort Irwin is in San Bernardino County, but when I hear San Bernardino without county on the end of the name I think of the city by the same name, which is quite a drive from Fort Irwin.Also, because this book was published before the author was murdered, there is no mention of the author being killed by a mentally disturbed Marine veteran.In comparison, here s how I rated some comparable books I ve read in the past couple of years: Civilian Warriors (2014) by Eric Prince (4 stars); Blackwater (2008) 2 stars; Big Boy Rules (2009) 3 stars; The Strongest Tribe (2009) by Bing West (4 stars); Unbroken (2014) by Laura Hillenbrand (4 stars); Ghost Soldiers (2001) audiobook (5 stars); Shadow Divers (2004) audiobook (5 stars). I ll stop there. I could keep listing books all day, going back to the first crusades.5No WordsHonestly I thought while reading this book that I was going to have so much to say about it. I highlighted comments in yellow, inspirations in blue, shocked moments in Orange and with all that this book has left me speechless. If I were to say anything it would be that you truly have no idea what a person goes through unless your that person, even if you walked the same path you still have no idea about a person. Do not judge things you know nothing about, do not condemn a person for things you don't have the ability to understand, do not hate just to hate, do not take sides in a debate of political and social standards as everyone is different and right in their own way. Live your life the way you choose to live, believe in what you do and who you are. Support your friends and family and spend your time helping others rather than judging and becoming upset over things in this world you either do not understand or can not change. Life is precious, see it for what it is and what you can make it by being open, understanding and loving to all those around you that do not wish you harm. Make life worth living for everyone that you can. Not Speechless after all!!!!5Telling it how it is.I hesitate to give this 5 stars since it most definitely takes a man like CPO Chris Kyle to have become the "deadliest sniper in U.S. history." What I mean by that is that in order to become a person extremely proficient in the art of warfare, you must be the kind of individual who should never belong in civilian society. Those of us who are in that world understand intimately that in order to fight monsters, you must also become a monster yourself. As the saying goes, the rest of us go to bed every night with peace of mind because there are rough men ready and willing to do violence on our behalf. CPO Kyle was one such man, and for that, I am grateful.All of that aside, his memoir reads well because it is written well. Or perhaps it's simply a fantastic piece of propaganda. No, not even close. This, like most other contemporary memoirs, brings you, the reader, to the front lines. You get into the mind of an American warfighter, and sometimes, that mind is something you don't want to become.But I think it's something we must all be aware of. We should get to know the price that is paid by human beings on both sides of war. War should never be waged, but sometimes it is necessary.Chief Petty Officer Chris Kyle, I thank you for your service to this country, no matter how effed up it is.5Great account of Chris Kyle's service to our countryGreat account of Chris Kyle's service to our country! Puts the major motion picture in to perspective, which I watched before reading this autobiography (as Hollywood often does, many of the encounters in the movie are embellished to create drama and evoke stronger emotion). It was nice to read that this man, in his own humble words, wasn't in-fact God (as the movie sometimes seems to be concluding), but rather a highly skilled, trained, and devoted service member that performed heroically on the battle field.Also a great reminder that the men and women who serve our country have chosen to serve on their own accord, but they are not the ones who voted to go to war. They do not deserve blame for the war- they deserve thanks and recognition for their (and their families') sacrifices. They are doing a job that they have been ordered to do, and those decisions come from policymakers and representatives that THE GENERAL PUBLIC have elected. When you see a vet, thank them for their service, regardless of your stance on whether the war they fought was justified or not! They may very well share your opinion, whatever that may be, but they committed to following through on the job that they were given, regardless of personal opinion.5GOD BLESS THE KYLE FAMILYReally great book I have a couple points, but first I served in Iraq in 08-09 as a gunner as a member of a combat MP team; being said, I have the utmost respect for snipers because of their overwatch capabilities. I mean, they all deserve a high five for keeping us ground pounders save over there. As for the book, I like it because Kyle writes in spoken word, not a verbage packed authoring kinda thing. He writes and talks like a SEAL. It s well written, I enjoyed the tidbits form Taya reminds me of when I describe my deployment and then my wife cuts in too. Very genuine book. As a soldier, I gotta pick on other branches as a requirement. Kyle calls SEALs silent professionals, I understand what he s saying, but he can get kinda obnoxious and narsasstic sometimes, im not giggin the guy though, he s a friggin SEAL, a horse of another color and im sure if I went through BUD/S and came out the other end, I d be a cocky bad-a%% too! Anyway, God bless Kyle and his family, rest in peace brother, you earned eternity of it in heaven thanks for you and all your brethren who watched our six, even when we didn t know you guys were there.5Great story, too many extra thoughts.American Sniper, the autobiography from the perspective of Navy Seal Chris Kyle, opened my eyes to what war can do to a man. Although I had to pick through some unnecessary and puzzling thoughts, the book has many great parts and moving quotes. Sometimes books about war can get boring and flat; however, there are a few points in this autobiography that keep the reader intrigued in ways other than suspense. This is why humor is one of the strong points of this book, because even when everything is going badly, Chris Kyle finds a way to make a comical remark about it. Painting pictures of war are hard to do in literature. This quote from page 98 is the best description given about who they were fighting, The people we were fighting in Iraq, after Saddam's army fled or was defeated, were fanatics. They hated us because we weren't Muslim. They wanted to kill us, even though we'd just booted out their dictator, because we practiced a different religion than they did. Isn't religion supposed to teach tolerance? I felt this quote best shows how Kyle illustrates images in your mind as a reader. American Sniper isn t a book that can be read in one sitting, but it is definitely worth the read. The New York Times Bestseller starts off very quickly, and I m sure other readers can agree being thrown into Mr. Kyle s life story can leave you feeling lost. Plus there is a 6-page section in chapter 5 that is entirely devoted to talking about guns the SEALs used in Iraq and totally sidetracks the reader from other conflicts in the story. I did watch the movie version and thought it did a better job of captivating the audience, but the book is more humorous and gives more details and statistics. Overall American Sniper is a good read, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about the Navy SEALs and legendary sniper Chris Kyle.3
