Audie Murphy hit the big time with this simple, compelling narrative of his time as an infantryman in WW II Europe. It is a book of raw honesty, clipped descriptions and simple courage. Later Murphy portrayed himself in the successful film and acted in several others before a plane crash ended his life at age 46. Tom Parker, a popular narrator of audiobooks, reminds one of National Public Radio newscasters. He is quietly descriptive, and the listener can't help being moved.
