A fact based and inspiring account of of the war exploits of Audie Murphy the most decorated American soldier of WWII Left in charge of his siblings after his mother's death Audie joined the military at the age of 17 as a way to provide for his family A true American hero his survives the US military advance through Europe with numerous acts of bravery that earn him rank and responsibility and eventually the Congressional Medal of Honor This is the true experiences of Audie Murphy at war Yes the shy western star of the late 40's 50's and 60's As a Vietnam veteran I can appreciate what he experienced My father was a WWII veteran South Pacific USMC so I knew that in this war you were in for the DURATION No one knew how long that would be Maybe into the 1950's or until there just weren't any men left alive to fight It may be hard to understand that concept He truly went through hell It's a miracle that he lived through it Lieutenant Murphy does not go beyond the war and the presentation of the Congressional Medal of Honor nor does he mention receiving any of the medals he was bestowed upon for bravery I regret that he didn't tell of the hell he experienced long after the war But for this book I had a hard time putting it down
