The Execution of Eddie Slovik

With the Bergdahl flap not likely to go away soon, here's a Michael Daly piece on the last U.S. soldier executed for desertion, Eddie Slovik, near the end of WWII.  Daly interviews a witness who calls Slovik actually a brave soldier.  For some reason Daly recounts Frank Sinatra buying and then killing film rights at request of JFK's dad, but does not mention the TV movie starring young Martin Sheen that I found compelling way back when.
