We Will Not Fight free pdf 'Vividly reconstructs the dramatic story of these men whose fortitude kept alive the principle of conscientious objection we now take for granted' Spectator 'A fascinating story, thoroughly researched and clearly told' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday Book of the Week In June 1916, as his brother Philip was on the way to the Somme, Bert Brocklesby was in prison under sentence of death. He had refused to fight in the First World War. In this thoughtful, compelling and poignant book, Will Ellsworth-Jones tells the remarkable and little-known story of courageous men like Bert Brocklesby, who defied both brutal incomprehension from the military, and white feathers waved at them in the street, to leave a lasting legacy: the freedom to voice unpopular beliefs and to challenge those who decide to take us to war. 'A fascinating and frightening story of an army very nearly out of control of its political masters' Francis Beckett, Guardian 'A moving and grippingly readable book' Sunday Telegraph
