The Conscientious Objector

2004 Rated NR 1hr 41m

In this feature-length documentary, filmmaker Terry Benedict relates the true story of Desmond Doss, a World War II soldier who refused to take up arms against others yet found himself wearing the Congressional Medal of Honor. Viewing his beliefs as those of a "conscientious cooperator" -- and not an "objector" -- the combat medic bravely rescued 75 wounded men from the front lines without any weapons to defend himself.
