“It takes as much courage to stand up against the Army as it does to go to war. History is made by people prepared to make that kind of sacrifice.”—Tony Benn, former British Member of Parliament
“Joe Glenton is the really brave soldier: the one who refused to fight in an unjust war and suffered imprisonment as a result. Above the sound of gunfire it is his story that deserves to be heard.”—John Rees, cofounder of the Stop the War Coalition
