'What stands out from this authoritative account is the servile treachery of the Welsh petty-bourgeois intelligentsia who, until 1914, dominated Welsh religious, cultural and political life.' - Robert Griffiths https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/c/opposition-great-war-wales-1914-1918-aled-eirug


‘Drawing on a wide range of compelling evidence, this ground-breaking study of the political, religious and moral opposition to the war in Wales concludes that it was a coherent anti-war movement, with far-reaching consequences, not simply a series of discrete activities.’
- Professor Sir Deian Hopkin, chair of the Wales First World War Commemoration Committee

‘True archival research which opens up a little-known world of pacifist idealists, revolutionary socialists, imperial zealots and wartime skulduggery.’
- James Hawes, author of The Shortest History of Germany

This book is a valuable contribution to the understanding of those who sacrificed so much to oppose the most horrific of conflicts and the communities from which they came. - Wayne David MP, Arts and Culture

'Using English and Welsh medium sources, Eurig provides a multifaceted and layered analysis of opposition to the war in Wales. It is likely to be the key point of reference for anyone interested in the topic and a vital component in any wider study of opposition to the war in Britain.'
- Labour History Review, Gerard C. Oram, Swansea University
