Audie Murphy stars as himself in the true-life account of his incredible courage and heroism that made him the most decorated soldier of World War Two. Joining the Army at just 18, he was modest and self-effacing but also a natural leader and he quickly rose through the ranks as the US military fought in Africa and then advances through Italy, France and into Germany. In his greatest act of valour, for which he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, he ordered his men to withdraw to safety as six German tanks and waves of infantry attacked. Having directed artillery fire by telephone he then climbed on to one of his own burning tanks to employ its machinegun, refusing to give an inch of ground and saving his company.
