Audie Murphy was the most decorated soldier during World War II. He was awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest military award for bravery given to any individual who risks their life above and beyond the call of duty. Audie Murphy's life was shaped by three things: the Great Depression of the 1930s, World War II of the 1940s, and a Hollywood career which began in the early 1950s and continued through the 1960s. The Depression and his family's poverty toughened him. The war was the experience that followed him all his life and brought him fame. Hollywood was never like real life to him. Of the three, war was the definitive experience of his life. On May 28, 1971, Audie, along with several other men, were passengers on a private plane on their way to investigate a business opportunity. The plane crashed in fog and rain on the side of a mountain near Roanoke, Virginia. All aboard were killed. Audie Murphy was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. Audie Murphy was a true American hero and his life was a rags- to-riches story. But in Audie Murphy, author Judy Alter shows that fame does not always bring happiness. Audie Murphy is the fifth title in the Stars of Texas Series, aimed at fourth graders studying for the Texas history section of the TAKS test. The first three books in the series, Henrietta King: Rancher and Philanthropist, Mirabeau B. Lamar: Second President of Texas, and Miriam "Ma" Ferguson: First Woman Governor of Texas, have been chosen for the Accelerated Reader program, and Henrietta King was a Spur Award finalist.

Titanic Wood Model Ship RMS Titanic is one of the most famous historical ships. Titanic was the biggest moving object ever build. She was not only biggest but also backed with superior quality and performance. Titanic was the property of White Star Corporation, based in Britain. The RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Titanic, an Olympic class passenger liner, was a British luxury passenger liner that sank on April 15, 1912, en route to New York from Southampton, England, on its maiden voyage. The largest and most luxurious ship afloat, it had a double-bottomed hull divided into 16 watertight compartments. The Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, at 11:40 PM. Titanic sank, with great loss of life, at 2:20 AM, on April 15, 1912. The United States Senate investigation reported that 1,517 people perished in the accident, while the British investigation has the number at 1,490. Regardless, the disaster ranks as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and is by far the best known. It carried some of the richest, most powerful industrialists, multi-millionaire entrepreneurs of her day. The sinking of Titanic has been the basis for many novels describing fictionalized events on board the ship, such as Titanic: The Long Night written by Diane Hoh. Many reference books about the disaster have also been written since Titanic sank, the first of these appearing within months of the sinking. The book 'A Night to Remember' was made into a movie in 1958 and was also transformed into 'Titanic: The Musical', with a book by Peter Stone and music and lyrics by Maury Yeston. Several films and TV movies were produced the first being In Nacht und Eis as early as 1912. The 1997 film 'Titanic', starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet was a critical and commercial hit, winning eleven Academy Awards and holding the record for the highest box office returns of all time.
