Summary:

When he was seventeen years old, Audie Murphy falsified his birth records so that he could enlist in the Army and help defeat the Nazis. When he was nineteen, 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 forty-five—the unusual story of Audie Murphy, the most decorated hero of World War II, is brought to life for a new generation.

    This is a good book about a great American hero and his struggle with PTSD for the rest of his life after the war. His accomplishments on and off the battle field were remarkable. If you want to know more about the man, the war hero, the actor, the song writer this is the book for you. Also if you or someone you know is struggling with PTSD this book will help you to understand you (they) are not alone. Our society owes it to the returning men and women of the Military and our Police and Fire Fighters who are battling with PTSD to support them and provide the necessary medical treatments to help them.
