From the Publisher"Not only has Todd Tucker uncovered an extraordinary and virtually unknown story from World War II, he has told it in a masterful way. The Great Starvation Experiment is absolutely first-rate."
— Andrew Carroll, editor of the national bestselling War Letters and Behind the Lines
"The Great Starvation Experiment is a gracefully written account of one of the most inspiring stories of moral and political courage to emerge from the Second World War. Tucker explores questions about the nature of heroism and sacrifice that are particularly provocative and relevant now, when Americans are again waging war and facing difficult moral choices."
— Thurston Clarke, author of Ask Not: The Inauguration of John F. Kennedy and the Speech That Changed America
"Courage comes in many vessels. This captivating book recalls a team of conscientious objectors who wouldn't fight — but they would starve in the service of humanity. Part science, part philosophy, and pure human drama."
— David Von Drehle, author of Triangle
"Unique and absorbing."
— Alex Kershaw, author of The Longest Winter and The Bedford Boys
