More than 63,000 people registered as conscientious objectors (COs) during the Second World War. Drawn from all walks of life, their number included prominent citizens such as the playwright Christopher Fry and the composer Michael Tippett. In this history, Ann Kramer draws on interviews, newspaper accounts, letters and diaries to describe how they came to the decision to take a stand against war, the process of being designated a CO and the ostracism, abuse and even imprisonment that often followed.
