Summary: This is Audie Murphy's story of the achievements of himself and his men in World War II. At the tender age of 12, he becomes the head of the family after his father deserts them during the height of the depression. Audie struggles to keep the family together and to feed them. He manages to do so until his mother's death. Shortly afterwards, the family is split up with the smaller siblings placed in an orphanage. Audie then joins the army at the age of 18 and through the course of the war is decorated for valor nine times thus becoming the most decorated combat soldier in World War II. Audie does one of the bravest acts any soldier ever did during the war. He climbs aboard a burning tank destroyer and single handedly keeps the enemy from advancing on his position. He spends almost an hour on top of the tank destroyer until his ammunition is exhausted. Seconds later after climbing off the tank destroyer, it explodes. For this action, Audie receives the Medal of Honor.
