"The most powerful argument against war ever filmed."
- London Evening News

"One of the finest 'shorts' ever made... It is about a tiny incident in the American Civil War; a half day's truce between one Southern and two Northern soldiers who are guarding the opposing banks of a river. For taste, for poetic restraint, and as a commentary on the folly of war, it has never been bettered."
- Manchester Guardian
