To Hell And Back rates as one of the truly classic and unique movies of our time. To have Audie Murphy himself have to remember and "relive" his war experiences, having been removed from them for only ten years, is unprecedented.The movie is the forerunner of such movies as We Were Soldiers Once...and Black Hawk Down. Although Col. Tom Moore was only an on scene adviser he also relived some of the scenes(his own admission) that were depicted in "..Soldiers..." Black Hawk Down depicted actual footage of the battle. The historical and personal accuracy of these movies is tremendous. Audie, however paid a bitter price. His war experiences tormented him the rest of his life with constant insomnia, depression and anxiety. I was lucky enough to meet him at Suffolk Downs Race Track in 1959 or 1960. I always wondered what became of his siblings and sister. Audie Murphy is a true hero of the twentieth century. Everyone should take note of what true character, integrity and loyalty Audie gave us. Thank you Audie.

Let&#39;s face it; in a world of computers and egotists so far absent of true human contact and chivalry, Audie Murphy will forever shine brightly and ever brighter as a true man. He is perhaps the last real genuine American hero, as we slip into a vortex world of lawyers, statistics, and scams.<br/><br/>1.) At the age of 12, he chose to be a man by taking over his absentee father&#39;s role in his family; he literally fed his dirt poor family by putting meat on the table with a keen eye and a broken down .22 rifle. Working two jobs at this age, he still wrote cursively w/ excellent spelling and diction when he had to quit his education. This is something half of the high schoolers of today can&#39;t do as they &quot;rap&quot; themselves in hedonistic pursuits of clothes, breeding without responsibility, drugs, cell phones, and a disregard for another person&#39;s respect and rights.<br/><br/>2.) After multiple attempts to join our country&#39;s armed forces, he became the most highly decorated soldier in our nation&#39;s history, with countless feats of heroism (please see WWW.AUDIEMURPHY.COM.).<br/><br/>3.) He achieved Hollywood star status with his tough yet tender persona.<br/><br/>In a current world of 50 cents, we can look back to a time when a man was truly a man, and that man was the United States Medal of Honor Winner: AUDIE MURPHY.

It&#39;s a shame that more people haven&#39;t seen this movie in recent years. As much as Saving Private Ryan introduced a new generation to horrors and heroism of World War II, &quot;To Hell and Back&quot; introduces you to one of the men who lived through it. It doesn&#39;t attempt to glorify the War, it simply relates what happened to America&#39;s most decorated soldier based on his own story and actually staring him. While it&#39;s amazing that the baby faced Murphy still looks young enough in 1955 for the story to work 15 years after the fact, the truly amazing thing is that from most accounts, Murphy understates his own role in many of the events described in the movie. The final war scene for instance shows him holding off an entire German regiment using artilery and the machine gun of a burning tank. The fact is that he held that ground alone for well over an hour before the germans finally gave up. All the while the tank was burning and could have exploded at any time. Like many great soldiers, however, he had trouble adjusting to life after the war even with a semi-successful acting career aided by James Cagney after the war. Still, it&#39;s men like this, who risked and often gave their lives on the fields of Europe and Africa and in the waters and islands of the pacific, that we have to thank for the Freedoms we enjoy in the United States today. Too often we forget this.
