Mr. Huie was born in Hartselle in 1910, the son of John Bradford "Brad" Huie and Margaret Lois Brindley. He became one of this century's most prominent and controversial writers.

Mr. Huie's first novel, Mud on the Stars, dealt with coming-of-age in Alabama before the Second World War. Through his long career, Huie wrote 21 books that sold more than 28 million copies. Some of his books include The Revolt of Mamie Stover, The Americanization of Emily, The Hero of Iwo Jima, Hotel Mamie Stover, In the Hours of the Night, The Fight for Air Power, Can Do!: The Story of the Seabees, The Execution of Private Slovik, The Hiroshima Pilot, Three Lives for Mississippi, He Slew the Dreamer, and To Live and Die in Dixie.

Several of his books have been made into films and television movies. His story of the only American serviceman to be executed for cowardice and desertion in WWII, The Execution of Private Slovik, was the most-watched television movie ever when it aired in 1975.
