Summit County Library
"America at War" is the theme for the Winter/Spring 2019 book and film series at Kamas Branch, Summit County Library. All of these books are based on non-fiction accounts of U.S. intelligence, diplomatic and military engagement in clandestine activities or conflicts in Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan.
Academy Award winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood returns to the wartime genre with AMERICAN SNIPER, starring Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. But there was much more to this true American hero than his skill with a rifle. U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname "Legend." However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, becoming emblematic of the SEAL creed to "leave no man behind." But upon returning home, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.
