SEASON 1 EPISODE 10.
March 24 1959.
** Spoiler Alert **
SYNOPSIS: At 22:30 hours on November 14, 1915, four French soldiers witness something strange:
a glowing light in the sky that compels them to abandon their posts and cease fighting. The men are
arrested and tried for cowardice in the face of the enemy, but each soldier remembers a feeling of peace
and serenity at the moment they witnessed the heavenly light above the battlefield.
COMMENTARY: A strange, inexplicable light in the sky is the object of curiosity that precipitates the
drama in this truly bizarre but nonetheless interesting episode. Not merely a meteorological light source,
this object in the sky seems to cause the men to embrace pacifism . . .
