Open Letter: How should we remember the first world war?
Posted by JM Talboo
No Glory Open Letter. Over 400 people added their names yesterday, bringing the total number close to 6000 signatures. This shows the growing concern over attempts to use the World War One centenary in 2014 to revise history and re-define as "a price worth paying" the slaughter that killed over 15 million. No doubt we will also see politicians and generals exploiting next year's commemoration to justify the wars they are currently waging 100 years after the "war to end all wars" .
