Enemies of War

Six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her fifteen year old daughter were assassinated in El Salvador in 1989. The US government appointed Congressman Joseph Moakley to lead an investigation. What he found forced him to question a decade of US policy. Through eye-witness accounts of Americans and Salvadorans, Enemies of War unravels the political corruption embedded in El Salvador’s civil war and shows how ordinary people made extraordinary contributions in the fight for peace.

"Powerful… ENEMIES OF WAR strikes a good balance between attention to Congressmen Joe Moakley and Jim McGovern on the one hand and the situation of one Salvadoran family on the other hand." - Howard Zinn
