Price incl. VAT, excl delivery

An anthology of First World War voices

Some of the voices here came to oppose the war after reflecting on experience, others opposed it on principle before a shot was fired - they may have been few in number, but gradually their influence rose.

This anthology presents diverse voices of men and women who questioned and opposed the war - liberals, radicals and pacifists, anarchists and socialists, soldiers and non-combatants.

* How did people react to the war? Some short sentences painting brief images come first.
* A second chapter presents texts those who campaigned against militarism.
* The third chapter considers claims that this was a war for civilization, or for the freedom of small nations.
* A last chapter asks questions such as: How could the war have been prevented? And how could it be stopped?
