Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Americans often call World War II "the good war," but even it had its share of conscientious objectors. Some 12,000 men spent all or part of the war in Civilian Public Service, a program set up by members of the historic peace churches (Mennonites, Brethren, and Quakers) and participated in by pacifists from other churches, of no specific religious persuasion, and, in the case of a few, no persuasion except not to fight in that particular war. Frazer and O'Sullivan present spellbinding, personable interviews with 17 CPS veterans (two in tandem with their wives) and the World War I CO who chaired the board that administered the service. CPS men did a lot of hard, dirty, risky work, from digging ditches and fighting forest fires to working in mental hospitals and acting as guinea pigs for medical research on starvation and infectious diseases. The interviewees stand as profiles in courage, principal, and ideals, perhaps especially so the two who left the CPS and went to prison in order to express their pacifism most meaningfully. Awe inspiring. Ray Olson
