O'brien's conflict is that he is a pacifist fighting in the war. He rationalized his enlistment as a duty to his country and his family over his own convictions. However, the real conflict for him became something deeper as the harsh realities of war sank in. It is resolved for him as he leaves the war and he vows to remember the time and his friends in a book. He did.
