The bi-centennial edition limited to 5,000 copies of the biography of Audie Murphy, who was too young and two small, but went on to become one of the most celebrated American heroes of World War II, a Medal of Honor winner, and movie star.
This outstanding book is the must-have for fans of “The Most Decorated Combat Soldier of World War II”. I acquired mine in 1998 and it’s still an indispensible resource!
There is no other single source of printed material on Audie as extensive as this. From his family tree, to being born into a family of twelve children, to his military career, to his film career and beyond, Simpson combines excellent prose with hundreds of photos, graphics, maps, drawings, etc.
Yeah, it’s expensive, but it’s also a large book and there were only 5000 printed. A few years ago, there were only 500 known copies left of the original printing.
This will be about as close as you get to meeting Audie L. Murphy…don’t miss this chance!
