A war hero who refused to fight, students who stood up to Hitler, a ship that sailed into a nuclear test zone, a whole town which practiced non-violence. Peace Warriors tells the dramatic stories of people who chose non-violent resistance in times of conflict—stories of young men and women from New Zealand and around the world.
Young readers will discover that peaceful resistance can be as effective as military force, and that people power can change history.
Will be enjoyed by readers & classes with an interest in:
- World and NZ history
- Civil rights
