Summary, etc.:
Kyle--the deadliest sniper in U.S. history--tracks down and shoots the most important American firearms, from a flintlock rifle and a Colt revolver to the latest high-tech weapon he used as a Navy SEAL. He also uses these guns as a window on United States history, arguing that the story of the United States has been tied to, and shaped by, the gun.
