Uses an oral history to illuminate the experience of conscientious objectors in the Civilian Public Service (CPS) during World War II. The CPS program was 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. Includes interviews with 17 CPS veterans and others.
