Product Notes

Millions of people from Allied countries fought to liberate Europe from Hitler's grip during World War II. Yet 40,000 Americans refused to shoulder weapons in "the good war." Narrated by Ed Asner, this important film tells the story of a previously ignored chapter of WWII - the American conscientious objectors who refused to fight. It is a story of personal courage, idealism and nonconformity based on both ethical and religious beliefs - about men whose love of country could not extend to killing their fellow man. Many were Quakers or others whose religious beliefs interpreted the commandment "Thou Shalt Not Kill" to include war; others were passionate pacifists who felt morally incapable of cooperating with a violent conflict, no matter how worthy the cause. All lived with the scorn of a nation, and often family and friends as well. While it has been more than half a century since WWII, this particular war story has been almost entirely lost to history until now.
