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. army SEAL and number one bestselling writer of yankee Sniper Chris Kyle dramatically chronicles the tale of America—from the Revolution to the present—through the lens of ten iconic guns and the outstanding heroes who used them to form historical past: the yankee 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, event, invention, and sacrifice.

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