British armed forces’ strikes and mutinies in 1918-19: a radical history project for the anniversary of World War I
BRHG’s very own Roger Ball will kick off the afternoon with the conveniently forgotten history of British armed forces’ post WWI strikes and mutinies. Roger reveals how the mass refusal of troops across Europe included expressions of militant dissent in Britain. Such widespread revolt led to the collapse of the Allied invasion of Soviet Russia. The second part of the meeting will discuss what we can do to disrupt attempts by Cameron and the Tories to spin the 100th anniversary of the War’s outbreak next year. Never mind their flagging credentials; radical historians can start the resistance right here!
