SHORT CHARTIST ARTICLES
Chartist is a well-established journal of democratic socialism published six times a year.
Early in 2014 I was asked by Chartist to write a short article about the First World War a century previously. The original idea was that other people would supply further articles, but as far as I am aware no one did, and in the end I contributed three pieces. Anticipating that others would write on the Left wing opposition to the war, the No Conscription Fellowship, the Union of Democratic Control and other more obvious topics I decided to leave these to them and tackle less well-known aspects of the Left's experience of the war. Doing these articles is what gave me the idea for Drums of Armageddon
