True-life account of the military career of Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier in WWII. Native of Texas, he was placed in charge of his many younger siblings on the death of his mother and decided to join the military at the age of 18 to provide for them. His many acts of bravery and heroism during the US military advance through Italy, France and into Germany earn him increasing rank and responsibility as well as the respect of his comrades in arms. Eventually he receives two dozen of the highest medals the US and France can bestow, culminating in the awarding of the Congressional Medal of Honor. Written by

Audie Murphy's feats of heroism and much decorated status has likened him to be considered a World War II version of World War I's Sgt. Alvin Cullum York, whose feats of heroism and much decorated status was the subject of its own earlier Hollywood movie in Sergeant York (1941). See more »
In the combat scene for which Murphy earned the Medal of Honor, he is shown on an abandoned and burning M4 Sherman tank, firing its .50-caliber machine gun at the German attackers. In fact, Murphy performed this heroic action on an M10 tank destroyer, not an M4 tank. See more »

A good soldier's story, played by "THE REAL McCOY"
I've always Liked watching Audie Murphy's movies since I was a child. I guess it also had to do with the fact that he had that baby face. Being a combat wounded Viet Nam vet, I can relate to his ordeal during and after the war. This man was a caring man who thought of others. Like many other "Medal of Honor" winners; he like the others are not the movie RAMBO hero. They Are "THE REAL McCOYS" It's ironic, though. His last movie in 1971 was called "A time for dying"[A Jesse James movie.] In that same year he died in a small plane crash. A friend of his had once said," all those Germans could not kill him,yet a plane crash near home took his life." My last words are, "May he be with the Lord."
