Archibald Baxter We Will Not Cease

As ANZAC ceremonies this month remember those who lost their lives in war and honour those who returned here is a classic anti-war story. It is as relevant in today's world as the brutal experiences of being 'crucified' that Archibald Baxter recounts as a conscientious objector sent to the front line in World War I - 'the war to end all wars'.

Baxter's We Will Not Cease , now widely regarded as a New Zealand classic, earns the description because of its dispassionate and non-rancorous portrayal of man's inhumanity to man. The universal plea for non-violence.
