The Conscientious Objector is a multiple award-winning documentary which tells the incredible true story of Desmond T. Doss, a World War II hero who never once touched a firearm. An inspiring and life-affirming account of a peaceful man whose religious beliefs spurred him to renounce all weapons and, in the process, allowed for him to save countless lives as a medic on the front lines and, eventually, to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor.

I think this film would be perfect for history classes, especially for young people, because it clearly illustrates the war while not including tons of gratuitous images of carnage. It covers history, but it's intimate...
There is something about this film that, either by the perspective of the film maker, or the veterans telling their stories, that fills a gap in my knowledge of or feelings toward the war. I felt more whole, having seen it, and while I didn't think I could feel prouder of or more supportive of our veteran and current service men and women, after watching this I felt utterly humbled by the bravery sometimes necessary just to "get through a day's work" and get home. By the end, all I could do was cry.
I do not want to spoil this story by telling too much, but it is a fantastic story of Faith and Patriotism and Respect. I think that people of all ages could glean something from this man's story. In this time where our young women and men have been at war for so many years and for all of the Viet Nam era veterans who have been treated badly in many cases during and since that war, I think this story can teach us all to appreciate everyone who has fought for our Country. It is a documentary, but there are films and pictures of the battles and what this man accomplished as a medic. PLEASE BUY THIS FOR YOUR FAMILY. You will not be sorry that you did. And you can watch it often. There is so much to consider in this DVD.
