Refusing to kill
Ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances can show us that even in the darkest of times it is possible to resist the call to war.
Refusing to Kill tells the stories of men who in the First World War resisted the propaganda, the peer pressure and the full and sometimes brutal force of the state and refused to take part in war: the killing of strangers - of men like themselves.
Ideal for use in class with a range of supplementary teaching and study notes.
