On 15 February 2003, an estimated two million Britons took to the streets of London to protest against war in Iraq. Since the outbreak of that conflict, the anti-war movement has broadened and now has a global reach. Not all protesters would consider themselves pacifists - against all wars and violence - but whatever the basis of objection, their protest is part of one of the most enduring movements in history. Based on nearly 200 personal testimonies from the Imperial War Museum Collections, this landmark book tells the stories of those who participated in protest - from the Great War of 1914-18, through to the Second World War, the Cold War and up to the present day, including the Falkland Islands invasion in the early 1980s, the first Gulf War in 1990-91 and the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. "Voices Against War" is a compelling, emotional and very moving human story, essential for understanding war in its entirety.
