What's the meaning of this sentence? Thank you! They were more than willing to suffer death for their principles. P.S. Could you help me to explain the meaning of this sentence, esp the part of "suffer death for their principles"? Thank you!

They were more than willing to suffer death for their principles. They were more than ready to die for the principles they believed in . They were more than eager to die for whatever they strongly believed in than to abandoned them. More than willing = Even the word "willing" is mild . It cannot show how very eager you are to do something . Suffer death = to have death as the punishment .

more than willing = very willing suffer death = accept being put to death for their principles = because of the principles they hold
