Audie Murphy goes “To Hell and Back””
Audie Murphy was also the most decorated American soldier in World War Two , and the recipient of America’s hightest military award , The Congressional Medal of Honor.
He told his story in his book ” To Hell and Back” , which was made into the movie of the same name in which he starred as himself , and which I consider to be one of the best WWII movies.
I found an audio version of his book, and apart for its historical value , it is a great story ; Murphy was a great storyteller , no wonder he became a successful actor after the war.
I find audio books an easy, convenient way to enjoy good books ( without straining the eyes , and a great distraction from the events and news of the day.
For those interested , you will find many good audio-books of different genres on YouTube , and I highly recommend this one for lovers of action and adventure , and especially for fans of Audie Murphy, a true American hero.
Murphy died in a plane crash in Virginia in 1971 , shortly before his 46th birthday. He was interred with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery.
