“In my opinion u0026#39;To Hell and Backu0026#39; is one of the best war movie ever made, (right next to u0026#39;Saving Private Ryanu0026#39;) because it was about a true story of a kid from Texas with a run-a-way Father and a dead Mother, wanted to do something for the war effort but was turned down by every other service except the Army, and the Army had second thoughts. What makes this movie very special is the fact that the most ever to date decorated US soldier (two dozen of the highest medals) and a Congressional Medal of Honor receiver, not only lived through the war, but in fact played himself ! after being talked into it, seems he didnu0026#39;t want to play himself, he thought it would degrade the Medal of Honor. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI watched a run of this movie on the History Channel, it was a show called, is it u0026#39;History or Hollywoodu0026#39; where by at the end of the show 3 Historians discuss a movie for Historic correctness, every one said if anything this movie was under stated of what Audie Murphy truly did in Europe during WWII, one said it was down played because of Audie Murphy himself, because his Army recorded as witness by others has him doing lots more, but that was the personality of Audie Murphy, imagine watching a movie were the battleu0026#39;s and the deeds are true, they called out a seen where Audieu0026#39;s best friend gets shot, he really did go ballistic charging at the German machine gun nest that killed him, picks up a German Machine gun then proceeds to take out 2 or 3 more gun sites, by using the German gun it didnu0026#39;t give a warning to the Germans, he saved countless American lives coming up that mountain, a brilliant movie. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy only wish is for this movie to come out on DVD, please release u0026#39;To Hell and Backu0026#39; on DVD !”
