Bread And Water: The Escape And Ordeal Of Two New Zealand World War II Conscientious Objectors
by W J Foote
New Zealand World War II conscientious objectors were treated harshly.
Imprisoned for their pacifist beliefs, Chris Palmer and Merv Browne were held in military defaulters’ camps in the central North Island.
To bring conditions in the camps to public notice, in 1944 Chris and Merv escaped to Wellington.
This classic book tells of their audacious adventure and consequent punishment.
