Is he really a Sniper ??,
This review is from: American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History (Hardcover)
Very disappointed with this...bought it as a person interested in Snipers, the technology, the mindset etc. but found this book to be completely rammed with gagworthy patriotism, and "How great am I?" drivel....
Kyle's descriptions of his sniping activities amounted to "an insurgent appearing, I took him down, another appeared, I took him down too......."....was this guy actually a Sniper at all ?? Makes me wonder..
If you want a much better sniping/Iraq/Afghanistan book check out Dan Mills effort Sniper One - excellent (and British, so no flag flying)...descriptive and factual...

I ended up here as a result of the author's recent death (shot by a guy he was trying to help). His book was mentioned on TV so I thought it might be interesting. Then i saw the reviews! Your review was particularly useful because you pointed to Sniper One which does sound excellent so I've ordered that one, not this one. Thank you!

Sniper One is an excellent book. Very well recommended.
