Respected By Friend And Foe

With 255 kills, 160 officially confirmed by the Department of Defense, Chris Kyle is the deadliest marksman in U.S. military history. As a result, his fellow American warriors called him “The Legend,” while the enemy defined their fear of him by calling him “the devil” (al-Shaitan) and placing a bounty on his head.

Unfortunately, Chris Kyle was tragically killed in 2013. But before his death, he chronicled his extraordinary battlefield experiences in the bestseller “American Sniper.” That book became a huge box office hit with its theatrical release in early 2015. The film received six nominations at the 87th American Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor for Bradley Cooper, who played Kyle.
