Inhoud: In August 1944, a drab convoy of raw recruits destined to join the 28th Divison lumbered along a windy French road strewn with dead animals, shattered bodies, and burning equipment. One of those draftees was 24-year-old Eddie Slovik, a petty thief from Detroit who had spent his youth in and out of reform schools. Slovik's luck had recently changed, however, with a steady factory job and marriage to a beautiful girl who gave him hope and security for the first time in his life. But their honeymoon --
like that of many others wartime newlyweds --
was interrupted by the call to service. The convoy come under intense artillery fire, and in the confusion Slovik became separated from his unit. He joined a Canadian outfit and traveled with them before finally reporting to the 28th Division. He carried a rifle but no ammunition. He was assigned to a platoon but refused to fight. Slovik was arrested, court martialed, and condemned to death. Thousands of soldiers were tried for desertion during World War II and sentenced to die, but only Eddie Slovik paid the price, supposedly as a deterrent, yet word of the nature of his death was never officially released.
