Never underestimate the effect of a good made-for-TV movie. I ran across Martin Sheen doing this on Youtube the other night. Off to read the book and get the story.

An odd fact about US history leads to an interesting story about people

Just three minor suggestions for improvement:

You might like to link to A2854730

In the Timeline, try using paragraph tags rather than br/ in each list item, to see if that looks clearer.

"10 am to 11:40 am" - "10.00am to 11.40am"

Thanks for telling Eddie Slovik's story for us.

A tough read - but I managed. I wrote "Shot At Dawn" for my Dad who always laid a special cross on Remembrance Dad signed "For those shot at dawn" - they were finally pardoned in 2006 - the year my Dad passed.

Thanks for writing this up, I didn't know the story. The bit about the chaplain counselling the unhappy firing squad *gulp* smiley - cry

I added a picture. No photos of the Slovik incident are available from official sources. This is a cartoon from Yank: The Army Weekly, that conveys the experience of being under intense fire, I thought.
