5 Kyle, Chris. With William Doyle. Editorial contributions by Jim Defelice. Foreword and afterword by Taya Kyle. AMERICAN GUN: A HISTORY OF THE U.S. IN TEN FIREARMS.
New York William Morrow 2013 0062242717 / 9780062242716 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
302 pp, 9 1/4" H. Pictorial endpapers, b&w illustrations. "Drawing on his unmatched firearms knowledge and combat experience, Kyle carefully chose ten guns to help tell (American history): the American long rifle, Spencer repeater, Colt. 45 revolver, Winchester rifle, Springfield 1903 rifle, Thompson submachine gun, 1911 pistol, M1 Garand, .38 Special police revolver, and the M16 rifle platform Kyle himself used as a SEAL. Through them, he revisits thrilling turning points in American history, including the single sniper shot that turned the tide of the Revolutionary War, the firearms designs that proved decisive at Gettsyburg, the 'gun that won the West', and the weapons that gave U.S. soldiers an edge in the world wars and beyond. This is also the story of how firearms innovation, creativity, and industrial genius has constantly pushed American history - and power - forward." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
