Summary:

Le sniper le plus redoutable d'Amérique ! Chris Kyle est le sniper le plus redoutable de toute l'histoire militaire américaine. Surnommé "Al-Shaitan" (le Diable) par ceux qu'il traquait et "la Légende" par ses frères d'armes des Navy SEALs, il est crédité de 255 ennemis tués. Déployé à quatre reprises en Irak dans le cadre de l'opération Iraqi Freedom, il a été engagé dans les combats urbains les plus terribles du conflit : Fallouja, Ramadi ou encore Sadr City. Progressant au coeur des fournaises insurgées, investissant les maisons en tête des groupes d'assaut, protégeant ses camarades depuis son poste de tir, pris pour cible par les insurgés qui mirent sa tête à prix, Chris Kyle a été de toutes les batailles. Témoin des atrocités de la guerre et de la malveillance d'un ennemi fanatique, il livre un récit brut et dévoile au grand public son quotidien de SEAL et de sniper, mais aussi les conséquences de celui-ci sur sa vie personnelle. Le récit brut et captivant de la vie de Chris Kyle, une légende de l'histoire militaire américaine.

He loved to hunt and ride horses and would have been a cowboy if he had not become a member of the Navy Sea, Air, Land Teams (SEAL). He had a lot of fun hunting with his mom, dad, and brother as a child. His dad and brother were his best friends growing up. Kyle learned true patience by learning to break a horse. He got involved in rodeo competitions to quench his thirst for being a cowboy. In 1992, he graduated and went to Tarleton State University with aspirations to join the military afterward. An accident in his freshman year ended his rodeo career when he had to have pins put in his wrist. He became a ranch hand for a man named David Landrum while he was still a student. Landrum’s strict expectations made Kyle want to prove himself. Kyle believes this prepared him to become a Navy SEAL. Kyle decided to quit school and join the military. He learned about the SEALs and wanted to become one. He investigated the opportunity further and learned that there was no guarantee he would become a SEAL if he joined the Navy. He would need to earn the privilege. Kyle went through the application process, but the Navy disqualified him because of the pins in his wrist. He felt his military career had ended before it began. He went back to work for Landrum and hoped to become a rancher. Shortly afterward, a recruiter called and asked if he was still interested in becoming a SEAL.

Summary:

NOW A BLOCKBUSTER MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY CLINT EASTWOOD—NOMINATED FOR SIX ACADEMY AWARDS, INCLUDING BEST PICTURE This special enhanced edition features more than 10 exclusive videos with Chris Kyle and an additional 15 images and descriptions of the weapons used by the armed forces in their fight against terrorism overseas. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates—and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time. Please note that due to the large file size of these special features this enhanced e-book may take longer to download then a standard e-book.

Summary:

Most people think of snipers as shooters perched in urban hides, dealing out death unseen from a considerable distance. But this description barely scratches the surface. Special operations snipers are men with stacked skill sets who have the ability to turn the tide of battles, even when they aren't pulling the trigger. Snipers have played an outsized role in the War on Terror that has earned them the Medal of Honor, Navy Cross, and countless other honors. These are the most experienced warriors on the battlefield, oftentimes the units' best assaulters with years of door-kicking under their belt. These are the men who run ops in small teams across borders, or dress like locals and pull off high-risk vehicle reconnaissance and singleton missions in non-permissive environments. MODERN AMERICAN SNIPERS tells the inside story of some of the most heroic patriots in recent American history by the friends and colleagues who knew them best, including: * The Legend – Chris Kyle, SEAL Team 3 Chief and the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history * The Reaper – Nick Irving, the first African American to serve as a sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion, and its deadliest, with 33 confirmed kills * Robert Horrigan, Delta sniper who played a critical role in Operation Anaconda * Don Hollenbaugh, Delta Operator who earned the Distinguished Service Cross while embedded with a Marine platoon in the First Battle of Fallujah * And many more

Summary:

American snipers have gained increased popularity after the production of the movie American Sniper based on the life of Chris Kyle who served as a sharp shooter in Iraq consecutively for about four periods. Sharp shooter is the less common term to describe snipers whose role in history started in the World War. Famous snipers have since emerged forming part of the elite Navy Seals. While some people refer to snipers as cowards because they do seem to not be actively engaged in combat they have been hailed as heroes due to the reduced misses during combat and the flexibility of their attack to rely on stealth. American snipers have played a huge role in eliminating some of the terrorists bent on causing terror around the world. Snipers are originally meant to increase the chances of winning a war. They do this by neutralizing the most dangerous people in war from a concealed distance and thereby serve to provide an advantage to their side.

Summary:

From the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller American Sniper comes a heart-pounding military thriller in which the fabled Special Ops unit is activated to stop a group of terrorists from launching “suitcase” nukes somewhere in America. When Chechen terrorists manage to smuggle a Cold War–era Russian nuke across the Mexican-American border, the President is forced to reactivate the only unit capable of stopping them: Navy SEAL sniper Gil Shannon and his brash team of SEALs and Delta Force fighters. First introduced in Sniper Elite: One-Way Trip, hailed by Publishers Weekly as a “meaty thriller” with “snappy dialogue and well-timed humor,” Shannon and his team were run out of the military after defying direct orders and instead choosing to save the life of one of their own. In Target America, Gil and his team, many of whom had gone rogue, are reunited as an off-the-books Special Ops unit that must race against the clock to save the country from nuclear destruction. #1 New York Times bestselling author Scott McEwen once again delivers a gripping and fast-paced adventure that illuminates the shadow world of clandestine military operations.

Summary:

Un simple matelot de la marine américaine finit par révolutionner le concept même des forces spéciales en créant l’unité d’élite américaine la plus célèbre au monde : le SEAL Team 6. À l’origine, rien ne laissait présager que Richard Marcinko, un fils de mineur d’origine tchèque, révolutionnerait le concept même des forces spéciales en créant l’unité d’élite américaine la plus célèbre au monde : le SEAL Team 6. Pour Dick Marcinko, ce jeune homme bagarreur, grande gueule, doté d’une volonté hors du commun, tout commence par un engagement comme simple matelot dans la marine américaine en tant que transmetteur, jusqu’à ce qu’il découvre l’existence des SEAL, les forces spéciales de la Navy, et qu’il fasse le nécessaire pour intégrer l’un des deux seuls « teams » existant à l’époque. Déployé à deux reprises au Vietnam, sa personnalité hors du commun le pousse à user de stratégies de contre-guérilla particulièrement agressives à l’égard du Viet-cong, quitte à enfreindre les ordres d’un état-major réticent à l’idée de prendre des risques. Nommé conseiller militaire au Cambodge à l’issue de la guerre du Vietnam, il continue à passer plus de temps sur le terrain que dans son bureau... Détesté par certains officiers d’état-major, adulé par d’autres, Marcinko va ensuite prendre le commandement du SEAL Team 2, mais l’échec de l’opération Eagle Claw – menée par la Delta Force pour libérer des otages américains retenus en Iran – signe la réorganisation du commandement des opérations spéciales. Dick Marcinko se voit alors confier la mission de créer une nouvelle unité spéciale capable d’intervenir partout dans le monde, à n’importe quel moment, dans n’importe quel environnement. Il va désormais consacrer toute son énergie à façonner à son image cette unité d’exception qu’est le SEAL Team 6. Un nom qui est, depuis, entré dans l’Histoire. Découvrez le parcours de Dick Marcino, fils de mineur d'origine tchèque, qui créa l'illustre unité SEAL Team 6, capable d’intervenir partout dans le monde, à n’importe quel moment, dans n’importe quel environnement. EXTRAIT Une heure plus tard, nous arrivions en vue du site d’embuscade. La jungle était calme – pas de Khmers rouges ce soir. Du moins, pas encore. Bientôt, le pilote du PBR me montra quelque chose dans l’eau, à une centaine de mètres devant nous. Je braquai un projecteur dessus – il s’agissait bien de la masse grise d’une proue de barge émergeant de l’eau. « On se rapproche. » Nous vînmes nous coller contre l’épave. Je me débarrassai de mon treillis et rassemblai un gilet de sauvetage gonflable, une bouteille à oxygène, un détendeur, un masque, des palmes, du lestage, ainsi qu’une lampe torche étanche rattachée à un sac de nylon par l’intermédiaire d’un grand bout. « Vous m’attendez ici ! » Je m’équipai, passai les deux sacoches d’explosif Mk-135 et la lampe autour de mon cou, puis basculai en arrière dans l’eau. Le courant était plus fort que je ne le pensais, et les 20 kg d’explosifs que j’avais sur moi n’arrangeaient rien. Je nageai jusqu’à l’épave, attachai un bout à la proue, puis plongeai en profondeur le long de la coque bâbord. Alors que je me guidais d’une main contre la coque en tenant ma lampe torche de l’autre, il me vint à l’esprit que les Khmers rouges avaient peut-être piégé l’intérieur de l’épave. Du-ma-nhieu, Demo Dick. L’eau était saturée de limon et j’avais vraiment du mal à distinguer quoi que ce soit. Quand j’eus atteint le fond vaseux, j’entrepris de faire le tour de l’épave. Je fixai les deux sacoches d’explosif à 3 mètres de distance l’une de l’autre, de chaque côté de la poupe enfoncée dans la vase, et refis surface pour me signaler aux PBR qui m’attendaient à une cinquantaine de mètres de distance. J’enlevai mon détendeur : « Lancez-moi un bout ! »

Summary:

There are few names at the top of the list of military war heroes as well known or inspiring than Carlos Hathcock. His career, skills and tactics have had an enormous impact on military strategies across the armed services. A devoted Marine, he couldn't have known how much he would change the face of military strategy for not only his branch but the Army and Navy as well. A war hero, landmine survivor, multiple sclerosis sufferer, Sergeant Hathcock certainly had an impressive life. The stories of his escapades in the jungles of Vietnam precede the quiet and gentle man and serve as a startling contradiction. He was a sniper who didn't like killing, but he was damn good at it.
