Whether as a novelist in works such as Leopards Kill, or a biographer whose work on Omar Bradley is the only full-length critical account of the general's life, Jim DeFelice has earned a reputation as one of the most entertaining and thoughtful popular writers of our time.

Perhaps best-known for his work with Chris Kyle on American Sniper, Jim has written over fifty books. Among his fifteen NY Times best-sellers are techno-thrillers, a story anthology, and several works of nonfiction.
