THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING FOLLOW-UP TO AMERICAN SNIPER

Join Chris Kyle on a journedy to discover “how 10 firearms changed United States history” (New York Times Book Review)

Drawing on his legendary firearms knowledge and combat experience, U.S. Navy SEAL and #1 bestselling author of American Sniper Chris Kyle dramatically chronicles the story of America—from the Revolution to the present—through the lens of ten iconic guns and the remarkable heroes who used them to shape history: the American long rifle, Spencer repeater, Colt .45 revolver, Winchester 1873 rifle, Springfield M1903 rifle, M1911 pistol, Thompson submachine gun, M1 Garand, .38 Special police revolver, and the M16 rifle platform Kyle himself used. American Gun is a sweeping epic of bravery, adventure, invention, and sacrifice.

Featuring a foreword and afterword by Taya Kyle and illustrated with more than 100 photographs, this new paperback edition features a bonus chapter, “The Eleventh Gun,” on shotguns, derringers, and the Browning M2 machine gun.

Chris Kyle is an American Navy seal who was murdered last month in Texas after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan for much of the 2000s. He wrote the best-selling autobiography American sniper. After having read that book, And then hearing about his murder less than a week later, I will most certainly be buying this one the day it comes out. My rating for the book is purely guessing judging by how much I like American sniper, As I obviously have not read this book yet since it hasn't come out.

American Gun Will Be An American Classic

I thoroughly enjoyed the many short stories of the guns that have become legends in our past in their own right. For those of us that have but a casual knowledge on guns this book provided an interesting insight into the inventors of these tools.

I would be remiss not to mention the untimely death of the author, Kris Kyle. May we all live a life of servant hood as Kris Kyle did.
