In World War II millions of soldiers went into battle far away from their homes. And many of those who returned faced an enemy just as formidable as the forces they fought on the battlefield. “Post-traumatic stress disorder” was usually treated with quite ineffective, yet highly addictive drugs. One of the men facing the horrors of WWII long after the war ended was first lieutenant Audie Murphy from Kingston, Texas.

En la 2ª Guerra Mundial millones de soldados fueron a la batalla lejos de sus casas. Muchos de los que volvieron, tuvieron que enfrentarse a un enemigo tan formidable como las fuerzas que combatieron en el campo de batalla. El “desorden de estrés postraumático” se solía tratar con drogas tan ineficientes como adictivas. Una de los hombres que sufrió los horrores de la 2ª Guerra Mundial mucho después que terminara fue el Teniente Primero Audie Murphy de Kingston, Texas.

Lyrics of Sabaton, To Hell and Back whistle

LYRICS SABATON | TO HELL AND BACK | ENGLISH

A short man from Texas
A man of the wild
Thrown into combat
Where bodies lie piled

Hides his emotions
His blood’s running cold
Just like his victories,
His story unfolds

Bright
A white light
If there’d be
Any glory in war

Let it rest
On men like him
Dead men will never come back

Crosses grow on Anzio
Where no soldiers sleep
And where hell’s six feet deep
That death does wait
There’s no debate
So charge and attack
Going to Hell and Back

A man of the 15th
A man of Can Do
Friends fall around him
And yet he came through

Let them fall face down
If they must die
Making it easier
To say goodbye

Bright
A white light
If there’d be,
Any glory in war

Let it rest
On men like him
Who went to Hell and came back

Crosses grow on Anzio
Where no soldiers sleep
And where hell’s six feet deep
That death does wait
There’s no debate
So charge and attack
Going to Hell and Back

Oh gather round me
And listen while I speak
Of a war
Where Hell is six feet deep

And all along the shore
Where cannons still roar
They’re haunting my dreams
They’re still there when I sleep

Crosses grow on Anzio
Where no soldiers sleep
And where hell’s six feet deep
That death does wait
There’s no debate
So charge and attack
Going to Hell and Back

Translated Sabaton To Hell and Back Meaning

LETRA SABATON | TO HELL AND BACK | SPANISH

Un hombre bajito de Texas
Un hombre salvaje
Empujado al combate
donde los cuerpos reposaban apilados

Esconde sus emociones
Su sangre corre fría
Como sus victorias
su historia se revela

Brillante,
una luz blanca
Si hubiera
alguna gloria en la guerra

Deja que descanse
sobre hombres como él
Los muertos nunca volverán

Las cruces aumentan en Anzio
Donde ningún soldado duerme
Y donde el infierno está seis pies bajo tierra
Esa muerte espera
No hay debate
Así que carga y ataca
Yendo al Infierno y de vuelta

Un hombre de la 15
Un hombre de Puedo Hacerlo
Amigos caen alrededor suyo
Y aun así él sigue

Déjalos caer boca abajo
si deben morir
Haciendo más sencillo
el decir adiós

Brillante,
una luz blanca
Si hubiera
alguna gloria en la guerra

Deja que descanse
sobre hombres como él
Que fueron al infierno y volvieron

Las cruces aumentan en Anzio
Donde ningún soldado duerme
Y donde el infierno está seis pies bajo tierra
Esa muerte espera
No hay debate
Así que carga y ataca
Yendo al Infierno y de vuelta

Poneros alrededor mío
y escuchar lo que digo
sobre una guerra
donde el Infierno está a seis metros de profundidad

Y a lo largo de la orilla
donde los cañones aún rugen
me persiguen en mis sueños
aún están ahí cuando duermo

Las cruces aumentan en Anzio
Donde ningún soldado duerme
Y donde el infierno está seis pies bajo tierra
Esa muerte espera
No hay debate
Así que carga y ataca
Yendo al Infierno y de vuelta
