American Gun: A History of the U.S. in Ten Firearms (P.S.)

Chris Kyle, William Doyle


Drawing on his mythical firearms wisdom and combat experience, U.S. military SEAL and number one bestselling writer of yank Sniper Chris Kyle dramatically chronicles the tale of America—from the Revolution to the present—through the lens of ten iconic guns and the notable heroes who used them to form historical past: the yank 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, experience, invention, and sacrifice.

Featuring a foreword and afterword by way of Taya Kyle and illustrated with greater than a hundred pictures, this new paperback version features a bonus bankruptcy, “The 11th Gun,” on shotguns, derringers, and the Browning M2 computing device gun.
