Audie Murphy films:
To Hell and Back The 1955 biopic starring Audie Murphy as himself. Murphy was the highest decorated American soldier in World War II (VHS)
No Name on the Bullet Jo (aka :"King Two") highly recommends this riveting Western about a tranquil town torn apart by distrust, fear, and paranoia. A notorious hired gunman comes to town with orders to kill someone: but only he knows who his target is. Great script and one of Murphy's finest film outings.

Audie Murphy books:
- To Hell and Back by Audie Murphy Originally published in 1949, To Hell and Back was a smash bestseller for fourteen weeks and later became a major motion picture starring Audie Murphy as himself. More than fifty years later, this classic wartime memoir is just as gripping as it was then. Desperate to see action but rejected by both the marines and paratroopers because he was too short, Murphy eventually found a home with the infantry. He fought through campaigns in Sicily, Italy, France, and Germany. Although still under twenty-one years old on V-E Day, he was credited with having killed, captured, or wounded 240 Germans. He emerged from the war as America's most decorated soldier, having received twenty-one medals, including our highest military decoration, the Congressional Medal of Honor. To Hell and Back is a powerfully real portrayal of American GIs at war.
