Dyfyniadau

‘Drawing on a wide range of compelling evidence, this ground-breaking study of the political, religious and moral opposition to the war in Wales concludes that it was a coherent anti-war movement, with far-reaching consequences, not simply a series of discrete activities.’
-Professor Sir Deian Hopkin, chair of the Wales First World War Commemoration Committee

‘True archival research which opens up a little-known world of pacifist idealists, revolutionary socialists, imperial zealots and wartime skulduggery.’
-James Hawes, author of The Shortest History of Germany

This book is a valuable contribution to the understanding of those who sacrificed so much to oppose the most horrific of conflicts and the communities from which they came. - Wayne David MP, Arts and Culture

'Using English and Welsh medium sources, Eurig provides a multifaceted and layered analysis of opposition to the war in Wales. It is likely to be the key point of reference for anyone interested in the topic and a vital component in any wider study of opposition to the war in Britain.'
- Labour History Review, Gerard C. Oram, Swansea University

'This significant and wide-ranging work will be of special interest to historians of pacifism and war resistance, but beyond that to those concerned with histories of the First World War and of the diverse communities of Wales itself.'
- The Welsh History Review, Hazel Kent, Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln
