I had read 14% of the book before it ever started talking about Audie Murphy's life.
As one reviewer said, great for a mythology class, but for those who are looking to learn something about the man, not very good.
The use of quoting Audie's ghostwritten auto-biography To Hell and Back, even to the point of using the fictional names for Audie's comrades in arms, was disturbing to me.
In my opinion for someone one to write about Audie Murphy's best friend in the army and refer to him by the fictional name used in Murphy's book, is to me a disservice to that friend, Lattie Tipton.
As was said, it maybe good a book for someone taking a course in mythology, but if you wish to learn more about Audie Murphy's life, buy To Hell and Back or No Name on the Bullet.
Ann ends her book with a description of Audie Murphy I have never seen before and I quote: "Murphy taught us to win with humility, lose without complaining, to fight when fighting was necessary, but at the same time, 'never hurt others willingly, including ourselves.' He told us that unfaced fear leads to 'selfishness, cruelty, and lack of self-respect.' He emphatically insisted that 'we are our brother's keeper.' His words can perhaps best be summed up by saying that what is important is not how much you take from the world, but how much you contribute to it. But Audie Murphy did more than tell us how we ought to live, he lived that way himself. He was a quietly generous man who shared what he had with others; he was humble, and made light of his own heroism, talents, and successes, he valued his family, he chose friends according to what they were rather than according to what they could do for him. He was honest, he accepted responsibility even when it was thrust upon him, as a child, as a soldier, and as a man, he protected others by putting himself in the line of fire, not only in battle, but in his later life as well."
This book is a must for the library of all Audie Murphy fans, as well as anyone who wants to know the story of a real, genuine hero.
