From: Mac McIntosh <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Audie Murphy To Hell and Back Date: March 17, 2010 3:43:50 PM EDT To: email@example.com Cc: H-NET Military History Discussion List <firstname.lastname@example.org> This thread on To Hell and Back brought forth a memory that I felt I had to share . During the 1955-1957 period I was a young soldat in Germany . Of all things someone had the Chutzpah to bring over to German movie houses To Hell and Back -- I think the marquee had it ZUR HOLLE UND ZURICK. mit Audie Murphy. I went to see the movie which was totally dubbed into German . The scene where Audie Murphy is on top of the burning tank firing a machine gun into masses of oncoming German soldiers-- the movie audience broke out into a big round of applause. The scene from 55 years ago now prodded by this thread is vivid in my memory.
