Hi,

Speaking of history vs fiction, I can't recall the name of the main character in the Red Badge of Courage. I do believe, however, that Audie Murphy was a soldier in WWII, who, basically, went ballistic and killed a bunch of Germans in France during a tank battle. He later made a movie or two about his exploits and was a national hero for awhile.

Now, do I understand I was born a good 20 years after WWII ended, so if anyone has better details, I'd be happy to stand corrected.

By the way, what is the blasted name of the character in Red Badge? The name "Henry" is coming to my mind.

Regards,

Rich
