Amongst the many stories about the 1914-1918 war little can be found outside academies or specialised literature about the men and women who objected to that war or those who, at considerable cost, refused to be conscripted into the armed forces and spent many years in jail. Our project focuses on these people and how they responded to the challenge of a society apparently enthusiastic for war and later grieving at its consequences.
