Click to EnlargeAUDIE MURPHY: GREAT AMERICAN HERO. A HISTORY CHANNEL® and A&E DVD Video. He was America's greatest World War II hero, at one point singlehandedly holding off 250 German soldiers and six tanks. But despite winning acclaim and stardom, he could never escape the pain and trauma of the conflict that made him a hero. From his difficult childhood in Texas where his father abandoned him and his mother died before he was 18 to his tragic death at 46, this is the story of Audie Murphy. Follow the young soldier into action in Italy, France and Germany, and hear from the men who fought alongside him. Revisit the exploits that won him 33 military decorations, including the Congressional Medal of Honor. After the war, he parlayed his heroic status into a career as an actor and writer, even playing himself in the film version of his autobiography. But he suffered from battle fatigue, and the strain of his memories drove him to problems with prescription drugs and gambling. Through clips from his films, newsreel footage and the memories of those who knew him including his sister the heroic but tragic tale of Audie Murphy comes to life.
