What a letdown - I was sick of Mr Kyle by page 5. To begin with, I'm not sure who to credit for this bit of writing; I suspect that Kyle contributed little but the anecdotal accounts and his name to the effort, as two other names are listed with his on the cover.

Interestingly, his wife is not given any co-author status although she provides significant input throughout the book.

Now all feelings about the propriety of this very controversial armed incursion into Iraq aside, one thing that turned me off about Kyle was his total lack of regard for his opponent. They're all "evil" or "blinded by evil" throughout this book.

What makes them evil is never satisfactorily explained; perhaps Mr Bush's "axis of evil" speech had something to do with it. Anyway, lightly armed Iraqis who oppose heavily armed and armoured coalition troops on Iraqi soil are "evil" and "terrorists".

He states several times that he is getting payback. Payback for what, exactly?

He also repeatedly claims to be defending his country, although I know of no attempt on the USA by Iraq. I fully understand that he doesn't decide to send the troops over, and that he has a job to do, but please, Mr Kyle Maybe a little remorse for the retarded kid you pounded because he didn't understand you?

His pomposity and vainglory ooze off of every page. And the violence! Of particular interest is Mr.

Along with the regular military forces his units were supporting, their missions were required, he explains, because the insurgents were resisting the pacification of their areas, which was a precondition for stabilizing the conditions for infrastructure reconstruction and state building to commence.

For a sniper, understanding mission objectives was crucial because he had to be careful to distinguish between insurgents and innocent bystanders. Especially revealing is Mr. Without them, alone, they were nothing.

His exploits earned him legendary stature.

His most legendary shot was outside Sadr City in when he spotted an insurgent with a rocket launcher near an Army convoy. Like many other military wives, she braved through the birth and early lives of their two children as well as tensions in their relationship while he was overseas, including his numerous injuries and various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder after his periodic returns from his dangerous deployments in Iraq.

Yet their love for each other, her inner strength and their enduring religious faith were strong enough to sustain their marriage. After leaving the Navy in , he returned to his native Texas and established Craft International, a firm that provides military and law enforcement sniper training as well as private security protection.

He volunteers his time with wounded-warrior foundations.Kyle talks honestly about the pain of war—of twice being shot and experiencing the tragic deaths of two close friends. He was still an America loving, politically incorrect guy who should have had a criminal record as long as his arm.

There's nothing artistic about the war. But the reality is much much different. I respect Chris Kyle's service and hoped to find a thoughtful reflection on his experience in Iraq but this cowboy turned Navy Seal's lack of self-reflection was really hard to read.
