American Sniper tells the true story of the most lethal sniper in U.S. history as Chris Kyle recounts his time spent serving in the military overseas. You’ll also read sections written by his wife, Taya Kyle, sharing her experiences back home as her husband served multiple tours of duty in the Middle East.
