Over 580 men from the Bristol area refused to fight in the first world war. They claimed the status of conscientious objector (CO) for moral, religious or political reasons. Some agreed to take non-military roles while others spent much of the war in prison, often under harsh conditions. This book tells the story of these CO's and the men and women who supported them. It also briefly considers CO's in World War 2 as well as the position for present day members of the armed forces who develop conscientious objections.
