Prisoner of Honor
Prisoner of Honor documents the French Dreyfus Affair that saw a French Captain sent to Devils' Island for espionage near the end of the nineteenth century. Colonel Picquart is given the job of justifying Dreyfus' sentence. Instead, he discovers that Dreyfus, a Jew, was a convenient scapegoat for the actions of the true culprit, a member of the French General staff. His attempt to right the wrong sees his military career ended and the famous French author, Emile Zola, found guilty of libel.
