Publisher's Summary

When he was 17 years old, Audie Murphy falsified his birth records so that he could enlist in the army and help defeat the Nazis. When he was 19, he single-handedly turned back the German army at the Battle of Colmar Pocket by climbing on top of a tank with a machine gun, a moment immortalized in the classic film To Hell and Back, starring Audie himself.
In the first biography covering his entire life - including his severe PTSD and his tragic death at age 45 - the unusual story of Audie Murphy, the most decorated hero of World War II, is brought to life for a new generation.

Horrible, Simplistic

Any additional comments?

The shame of this book is that Audie Murphy could offer an intense understanding of a valiant and tortured man. This isn't even on a Life magazine reporting level: this is TV Guide at its worst. The prose oohs and aahs, and the narrator sounds like a souped up TV entertainment talk show. Nope, nope, nope. Save your credit, your money, your time. I gave it two stars across the board only because when Murphy WAS quoted it did indeed sound like him. Bleah.
