To Hell and Back Summary


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 marines and paratroopers because he was too short, Murphy eventually found a home with the infantry. He fought through campaigns in Sicily, 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 America's highest military decoration, the congressional Medal of Honour. TO HELL AND BACK is a powerfully real portrayal of American GI's at war.
