Sam Martin spent nineteen months in prison during World War II. Why? Because the government would not accept his application for conscientious objector status. Instead of permitting Sam to do alternative service, the authorities sent him to prison. In a broader context, this book speaks to the issue of conscientious objection and its effect on people. This story is meant to convey the virtues shown by Sam Martin to the readers. But more than that, it is to serve as a reminder that conscientious objection is part of the larger story of World War II.
