The Good War and Those Who Refused to Fight It

THE GOOD WAR And Those Who Refused To Fight It sheds light on a previously ignored part of the World War II saga – the story of American conscientious objectors who refused to fight “the good war.” 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.

THE GOOD WAR And Those Who Refused To Fight It tells its story through the memories of several remarkable men who went against the tide of the most popular and justifiable war of the 20th century. 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.
