Chris Kyle diente von 1999 bis 2009 bei den U.­S. Navy SEALs und verzeichnete in dieser Zeit die höchste Zahl an tödlichen Treffern in der amerikanischen Militärgeschichte. 160 gezielte Liquidationen schreibt ihm das Pentagon offiziell zu. Seine Kameraden nannten ihn »Die Legende«, seine Feinde »Teufel« … In dieser eindringlichen Autobiografie erzählt der geborene Texaner, der 2013 erschossen wurde, die Geschichte seiner außergewöhnlichen Karriere. Nach dem 11. September 2001 wurde er im Kampf gegen den Terror an die Front geschickt und fand kurze Zeit später seine Berufung als Scharfschütze. Hart und ehrlich spricht Kyle über die Schattenseiten des Krieges und das brutale Handwerk des Tötens. Seine Frau Taya schildert in bewegenden Einschüben, wie der Krieg sich nicht nur auf ihre Ehe und ihre Kinder auswirkte, sondern auch auf ihren Mann. American Sniper ist das Psychogramm eines Scharfschützen und ein fesselnder Augenzeugenbericht aus dem Krieg, den nur ein Mann erzählen kann.
