Summary
Written by the distinguished Librarian of Congress and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Archibald MacLeish, this Prelinger Archives film gently criticizes civilian complacency in America that World War II is all but won by reminding viewers that casualties are continuing to be incurred by U.S. armed forces overseas and that "it's as hard...to die at the end of the war as its beginning." A moving melodrama.
