Matt Urban was the most combat-decorated soldier in World War II. This book depicts his numerous wartime exploits and heroism under fire; his dedication to all those under his command, often with disregard for his personal safety. Urban landed with the first American troops in Africa, leading his battalion in capturing Hill #409 in the Sedjanne Valley. He then single-handedly destroyed one of Rommel's two largest radio transmitters in the world. Urban commanded his troops in six major campaigns in Africa and Europe, receiving his seventh Purple Heart after being shot through the throat in Belgium. He lead the 3rd Army breakout from the hedgerows of France and subsequently was nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor.
