People of Honor: Wwii

Former Army-Chief-of-Staff General Edward Meyer has noted that 'An army does not fight a war, a nation does'. PEOPLE OF HONOR underscores that point with intertwining recollections of World War II experiences on both the home front and the war front. The documentary shows how mutual support was played a significant role toward victory. People of Honor is based upon 104 in-depth interviews taken over a ten year period of people living in a small county of northern Pennsylvania. Civilians told of their work in factories, buying bonds, gathering scrap metal, rationing, and the many other sacrifices of civilians. Soldiers expressed their experiences and deep feelings fighting on the war front --- watching frinds killed in action, surviving POW camps, living through the Bataan Death March. and so forth. They also tell of the emotions of finally coming home. Mothers and children of fallen soldiers reveal their experiences and manner of dealing with tragedy.
