Pacifist Writings from the Second World War
9780826493606   Product Code: 99443
This book reprints for the first time two short works by Vera Brittain (1893-1970) with an introduction by Aleksandra Bennett and a foreword by Shirley Williams, Vera Brittain's daughter. Following the First World War, in which she served as a nurse, Brittain moved gradually towards a position of Christian pacifism. Written in 1942 in the form of letters to her son, Humiliation with Honour is a statement of her pacifist beliefs. Two years later, in Seeds of Chaos, she argued forcibly against the Allies' policy of 'obliteration bombing'.
