I have enjoyed Hochschild's previous NF titles, and when this came through on the new cart at work I put aside all other books I currently had checked out to dive right in. This book tells the story of the anti-war effort prior and during to World War I, mostly in Britain. Told within the context of the lead up to and major operations of the war, this book introduced me to many new names and faces without leaving me in the dark about battle operations either. Well written and astonishing, this was both informative and interesting - especially the perspective of the worker's (socialist) movement. The text was tight and didn't bog down somewhere near the middle, which may be good editing, but I think may just be the writing and experience of the author. I would recommend this to many NF war readers, especially those looking for a varied not-so-gung-ho perspective. I might need a Bertrand Russell bio after this.
