When he was seventeen years old, Audie Murphy falsified his birth records so 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 45--the unusual story of Audie Murphy, the most decorated hero of WWII, is brought to life for a new generation.Über den Autor:
