Description

Comrades in Conscience is a groundbreaking study of opposition to the First World War in one locality – Huddersfield – where a unique consensus of Nonconformist Liberals and a vigorous labour and socialist movement earned it the reputation of being ‘a hotbed of pacifism’. Using local sources, including the weekly socialist newspaper The Worker, the records of anti-conscription organisations, as well as the testimonies of conscientious objectors themselves, Cyril Pearce portrays a community largely unenthusiastic about the war and tolerant of those who resisted it, and goes on to question widely-held assumptions about the war’s popularity. First published in 2001 Comrades in Conscience has been reprinted in a strikingly different format and contains significant revisions, new illustrations and new work based on the intervening years’ research. Cyril Pearce is also the author of the Pearce Register of British Conscientious Objectors which will be available free online through the Imperial War Museum’s Lives of the First World War website.
