War objectors 'faced tribunals'

Much has been made of the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII this year, yet there has been little mention of the conscientious objectors and pacifists. A new book, Voices Against War, reflects on the opponents of World War II based on nearly 200 personal testimonies from the Imperial War Museum Collections. Peter Sharp, who was a conscientious objector, discusses how being a protester affected him and his family.
