Saints at war talks of how faith and beliefs help people in the terrible times they went through. Some are brief and knowing of the horrors they had to go through I can understand their focus on faith filled times. I also have read the book "German Saints at war" and a good book called "Three against Hitler" That talk more about the German saints in this time. I appreciate how their faith helped them.
I was surprised at how much being able to meet and exercise their religion was worth to these I'd heard this book quoted in General Conference since it came out in 2001, and made a mental note to pick it up and read it at some point.

Latter-day Saint prisoners of war were one such group that often endured . Many Saints experienced great deprivations of food, clothing, and shelter.
Latter-day Saint prisoners of war were one such group that often endured living lives of quiet desperation and often for long periods. Ace Christensen is one such example. Despite their challenges, they persevered, and where they could, they met for Church meetings in homes or bombed-out buildings. Both current and future generations of Latter-day Saints must hold in sacred remembrance the sacrifices of the faithful Saints who fought in World War II. May the day be hastened in which nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more (Isa.
