About this title

Synopsis:

Audie Murphy was a dirt-poor Texas farm boy without a future. He spent much of his childhood working at low-paying jobs and hunting to keep his family from starving. Audie's future looked bleak--until the United States entered World War II. Audie lied about his age to join the army, and soon this baby-faced soldier was fighting in Europe. Audie became a fearless leader and the most decorated combat soldier in American history. His war experiences became a popular book and movie, and Audie went on to a career as a Hollywood star. However, the story of America's most honored soldier is not what it seems to be. Audie may have been a hero, but his war experiences affected his life long after the shooting stopped. Find out the fact and fiction about this war hero and movie star and learn the true story of Audie Murphy.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-8-While some of the titles here will hold greater interest for young readers than others, all take on the challenge of weighing legend against the historical record. Buffalo Bill Cody and Audie Murphy are especially rich in historical connections. The Buffalo Soldiers addresses significant historical misconceptions. Each of the books concludes with a chapter measuring perceptions about the subjects against reliable facts, though the presentation and format are inconsistent from volume to volume. Illustrations are numerous and varied, including contemporaneous photos, woodcuts, film stills, and excerpts from newspapers. VERDICT Above-average research materials and good introductions to historical analysis.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
