Millions of Americans fought for the liberation of Europe from Hitler's grip during World War II. Yet 40,000 Americans refused to shoulder weapons in "the good war" because their conscience would not allow them to kill another human being. In the face of criticism and scorn, the men challenged the limits of democracy in wartime. Many participated in the social movements that transformed America in the generations that followed. This is their story. Study guide available.
