During the First World War and after, conscientious objectors were vilified, assaulted, imprisoned and, on occasion, executed. This radical and refreshing book combines gender studies, criminology and sociology to explore the treatment of war resisters and the relationship between patriotism and conscience. Drawing on diaries, government papers, legal records, newspapers, magazines and fiction, it examines notions of masculinity and manliness, and explores the different ways in which COs were viewed: as cowards, heroes, criminals, degenerates or upstanding moral figures.
