Abstract

This article considers social conflict and control in Great Britain and Ireland during the First World War. Its focus is upon war resistance and, in particular, conscientious objection to military service. Conscription, conscientious objectors and their supporters as well as state attempts to manage these people are addressed within a wider context of dissention both at home and abroad. This entails the adoption of a broad sense of ‘war resistance’, with conscientious objection cast as being part of a bigger picture encompassing a range of war resistances and conscientious objectors viewed as belonging or linked to communities of resistance.
