Today, June 20, is the anniversary of Audie Murphy’s birthday , known as Audie Murphy Day in his home state of Texas. Audie Murphy was a brilliant US soldier who fought from Sicily to Germany during WWII, and became the most decorated US soldier of the war. At the end of WWII, he was only 20 and already received 38 medals, including the Medal of Honor and the Legion of Merit, plus French and Belgian decorations. His autobiographical account of his war experiences, “To Hell and Back”, as well as his rise to fame as an American movie star, cemented his position as an American hero and icon. We invite you to relive the fierce battles that he fought as a member of the 3rd US Infantry Division, from the beaches of Sicily to the snow forests of Germany, with Audie Murphy’s Campaign, created by Jacques “jdrommel” David, one of the most important contributors of the Memoir ’44 community with more than 200 original scenarios. We warmly thank Jacques for his exceptional work on this official campaign, dedicated to all of the soldiers who did their duty on the front, and managed to go “To Hell and Back”.
Days of Wonder have posted eight new scenarios for the Memoir '44 WWII boardgame. From their website:
