Fury was not a real story though... So....Overall it was a good movie but suffers the same thing lone survivor did. People who cannot be bothered to research will take it as gospel even though it knowingly distorts the truth, and to a large degree. Fury was a much better war movie.
I imagine some of the details in American Sniper were added in, or stretched to make the movie better, but largely everything else was most likely accurate. I have yet to read the book (purchased it) so I will be able to see what was actually added in just for the movie.
I'm guessing all the things about CK being a liar or fabricator of stories is also largely true. I'd think that he was maybe already kind of an egocentric person to begin with, and being "Legend" only made that worse. Couple that with seeing his buddies die and killing over 200 people, probably only made his mental state worse.
