James Tollefson imparts an oral history that has the compelling drama of the best fiction. Conscientious objectors tell the stories behind the classification: the depth of their conviction, their efforts to prove sincere opposition in the face of persecution and criminal prosecution, and their feelings today about their actions during the Vietnam War.

"Quiet, simple, disturbing: An invaluable contribution to the cultural history of the '60s." -KIRKUS REVIEWS Quiet, simple, disturbing: An invaluable contribution to the cultural history of the 60s. An extremely moving and very readable account of personal triumph in a period of national pain . . . . For those who want to understand the true depths which the Vietnam era forced many of us to plumb, this book is essential. For those who experience them firsthand, it is an open door on those troubling times, unflinchingly accurate and yet calming in its reflective power. I find as much courage on the pages of this book as I ever found in the midst of the shooting.
