Product Description

Delve into the heartfelt and often harrowing experiences of those who stood against the tide of war in "Conchies: Conscientious Objectors of The First World War." Written by Anne Greaves, this illuminating book sheds light on the brave individuals who refused to fight in World War I due to their moral and ethical beliefs.

"Conchies" offers a comprehensive exploration of the conscientious objectors, detailing their personal stories, the societal pressures they faced, and the legal battles they endured. Drawing from letters, diaries, and official documents, Greaves paints a vivid picture of their lives, revealing the inner strength and conviction required to stand by their principles in the face of widespread condemnation and harsh penalties.

This book goes beyond mere historical accounts, providing a nuanced analysis of the social, political, and legal frameworks that shaped the conscientious objection movement. It highlights the diverse motivations behind the decision to object, ranging from religious beliefs to political ideologies, and underscores the significant impact these individuals had on the broader discourse of war and peace.

"Conchies" is an essential read for history buffs, scholars, and anyone interested in the complexities of moral courage during times of conflict. Anne Greaves' engaging narrative brings to life the voices of those who chose the path of peace, offering an inspiring and thought-provoking tribute to their legacy
