To oppose the military machine means to accept the possibility that one may be destroyed by it. ? Archibald Baxter
We Will Not Cease is the unflinching account of New Zealander Archibald Baxter's brutal treatment as a conscientious objector during World War I.
In 1915, when Baxter was 33, he was arrested, sent to prison, then shipped under guard to Europe where he was forced to the front line against his will. Punished to the limits of his physical and mental endurance, Baxter was stripped of all dignity, beaten, starved and left for dead by the New Zealand military. In the final attempt to discredit him authorities consigned him to a mental institution, an experience that would haunt him for the rest of his life.
Long regarded as a classic, We Will Not Cease is as relevant now as when it was first published in 1939. This edition has a foreword by Michael King.
