What If Soldiers Fought with Pillows?

An impossible idea? Maybe not. During the Second World War, soldier Desmond Doss refused to carry a weapon because of his religious beliefs. Yet for his many acts of bravery as a medic, he was awarded a Congressional Medal or Honor at the end of the war.

Using a series of whimsical questions as a starting point, What If Soldiers Fought with Pillows? is a collection of real-life stories about courageous people and organizations from around the world that have imaginatively helped make a difference.

With lively pages filled with Serge Bloch’s playful and witty images, What If Soldiers Fought with Pillows? is a unique look at how the seemingly impossible might actually be possible.
