One of the most feared soldiers to ever set foot on the battleground that was and still is Iraq, Kyle recounts his bloody tales of war with deadly accuracy. Skillfully narrated by John Pruden, these fascinating war stories offer insight into the perils of modern combat. Pruden's tone is that of a Navy SEAL: calm, cool, and collected. And he never falters in recounting the author's impressive skills on the battlefield-skills that gave Kyle the most career sniper kills in United States military history. While Kyle's story is gripping in its own right, Pruden's outstanding narration brings the story to life with brutal realism. Pruden is a man possessed in this account; he embodies Kyle from start to finish. The result is truly chilling listening. A William Morrow hardcover. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Iraqi insurgents called him "The Devil," but to American and coalition forces fighting in Iraq, U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Kyle was a guardian angel. The native Texan delivers a mesmerizing and solidly built personal narrative of a little-known but fascinating aspect of the war. The honesty, humor, and details of Kyle's life remind one of Charles Henderson's classic Marine Sniper about the late Carlos Hathcock. VERDICT This well-crafted story makes one laugh and cry and is essential for understanding those who have given themselves to the American military in the long struggle against terrorism. John Pruden's masterly narration is well paced and incorporates a skillful use of accents. Highly recommended. [The Morrow hc, published in January, was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Scott R.
