5.0 out of 5 stars Yesterday's Hero - Today's Legend?, 31 May 2003
This review is from: To Hell and Back (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...
