Reviews

Audie Murphy stars as himself in the true-life account of his incredible courage and heroism that made him the most decorated soldier of World War Two. Joining the Army at just 18, he was modest and self-effacing but also a natural leader and he quickly rose through the ranks as the US military fought in Africa and then advances through Italy, France and into Germany. In his greatest act of valour, for which he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, he ordered his men to withdraw to safety as six German tanks and waves of infantry attacked. Having directed artillery fire by telephone he then climbed on to one of his own burning tanks to employ its machinegun, refusing to give an inch of ground and saving his company.

At first I was skeptical about the book. It is obviously ghostwritten. However, the ghostwriter is talented, his style a synthesis of Hemingway and Mickey Spillane. And Audie Murphy has a great and heroic tale to tell. Murphy's war is a lot different than say Eisenhower's and Patton's. Murphy became a master at small unit infantry tactics. He was one of the men. Ike and Patton were masters of strategy and were not really part of the men. What Murphy's story also illuminates is it is often just pure chance whether a soldier survives a war. Two pals of his were wounded in the right spots. Another had his heart pierced by a small shell fragment. Another buddy trusted a group of Germans faking a surrender and received a chest full of German lead for his trouble. For all those who liked the fictional "Battle Cry", you will like this book.

Format: Paperback
It's hard to do justice to this book, people say it was ghost written well it does not matter if it was or not, whoever sat down and put it together its a great book. You can hear Audi's voice in the words the way he speaks so calm and matter of fact and its so compelling a story of a man and his courage that it's really tough to put it down. So many war films and books have made incidents of heroism almost a cliché but cliché is born of a lack of knowledge of a subject. This book has great knowledge about people and how they deal with war with its horror and pain. This book made me laugh and it made me cry. If you have any interest in this subject and history this book will take you to a time and a place and to the hart of a man who can tell you some truth about war. Some of the dialog is written like lines from a great film script though it's not like the film its much more enduring. A story of a poor boy that turns out had a wealth in his own character that no businessman or king could ever dream of. The book is a treasure and I give it the highest recommendation.

I first read this book as a young man before entering high school. The book and Audie Murphy became a symbol of not only what one man can do, but what one man can stir in the friends and comrades around him.
Murphy's acts, thoughts, and efforts described in this book make him an absolute hero not only during the war, but should be displayed for generations to come as a man that believed in our country and the American Cause. It is the ideals that he fought for, and the American people that he believed in that make this book a must read for all types of people that would want to feel good about the United States of America and to be personaly uplifted and moved by the challenges that this soldier endured and overcame.

If you didn't know that this was a true story, you'd swear it was all too Hollywood and probably implausible.
But it is a true story and it marks Audie Murphy as a truly extraordinary man.
Murphy plays himself in this movie, based upon his own book, which tells the remarkable story of his exploits during world war 2.
He was underage when he joined up and was initially thought to be unfit for combat, an opinion he proved wrong many times over as he went on to become the most decorated veteran of the campaign.
But much more than this he had already quit school at age 12 so he could get a job to feed his family!
This is a guy whose selfless dedication and relentless spirit should be an example to every one of us.
Yes the film has its flaws, but they are few and far between. I easilly rate this as one of the best war films ever made!

Format: Paperback
This book does not glorify war. This book does not glorify the exploits of America's most decorated soldier. (He won 21 medals including The Congressional Medal of Honour, French Legion of Honour and the Croix de Guerre with Palm)
This book tells the truth about the things that 'Company B, 15th Infantry, 3rd Infantry Division' went through during 2 years of HELL!
Murph tells the reader about his friends and colleagues, the people he fought beside. How they lost life and limb (some just hours away from being sent home. Like Lattie Tipton)
He tells of their and his fears but, he never once mentions his medals, in fact he skims over the action where he won them. He was content to tell the story of his unit and their bravery. Of friends he found and lost. Of the cold and the wet and the mud. The foot rot, the blood and the sweat and the tears.
I went 'To Hell and Back' reading this book, but it was worth it.
Every school library should have a copy of this book in their history section.
Read it. Live it. Laugh, cry, be absorbed by it.
Go To Hell and Back with LT.Audie L Murphy. Company B. 15th Infantry, 3rd Infantry Division...

I have always admired Audie Murphy, and once you've read this account of his personal war time experiences I am positive you will too.
This is a blood and guts no holds barred account by a man who is modest to the end when telling of his bravery and loyalty to his comrades. I'm not surprised that he won the Congressional Medal of Honor, and many other bravery decorations.
What I particularly love about this book is that it is about all fighting men and does not criticise any other nation or in the same vain hype up the actions of one particular Army.
I recommend this enthralling and modest account to anyone with an interest in truth. You won't regret or forget it.
