A perfectly ordinary young man of great heroic virtue
How an ordinary Catholic man became a World War II hero
Elwood is the simple, engaging story of a WWII hero who was willing to give his life for his men, as their ship was sinking in a great disaster. It gives insight into the formation of a perfectly ordinary young man of great heroic virtue, and how it is that he was able to reach such a level of true charity that he is celebrated by his state and country.
Elwood Euart was not a great general; he was a captain doing what he saw as his duty, because somewhere in his education, the classical virtue of courage had taken hold. His was a pure, refined, and deep love for his men that was full of respect, with no hint of selfishness. By participating in the military mission of bringing them up from sick-bay, he was paying tribute to the unique and unrepeatable person of each man. He knew these men were worth saving.
