Synopsis

Conchies: Conscientious Objectors of the First World War by Ann Kramer

When, at the height of the First World War, many Allied governments introduced conscription, there were thousands of individuals who, for personal or religious reasons, refused to fight. After tough questioning, some were exempted but the majority were forced into the army anyways. Those who 'refused to do their duty' were threatened with death sentences or harsh prison terms; many died from ill treatment. Conchies collects many of the moving true stories of these brave individuals.
