This lecture will look at the groups and individuals who in various ways refused or resisted war during the First World War, including the conscientious objectors who for different reasons and to various degrees refused military conscription, the soldiers who went absent without leave or mutinied and the women peace activists who sought to end the war. Here the focus will be on Great Britain but the talk will have a wider story to tell about anti-militarism and resistance. In addition, it will reflect upon how we think about and utilise histories of war resistance post the centenary period.
