MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Imagine Christ dressed in khaki, thrusting his bayonet into another man. This was what some conscientious objectors to the war of 1914-18 urged their co-patriots to do. In telling the intriguing stories of these men, Lois Bibbings brilliantly exposes the contradictions of manliness in wartime.’ Professor Joanna Bourke, Birkbeck College - .
