Jeremy Corbyn, who launched the book last week at the Labour Party Conference complimented Grace and Rosalie on their commitment and brilliant chronicling of a great campaign. He also commentsthat:
As Nato gears up for yet more interventions and the “defence industry” lobbies hard for new nuclear weapons, aircraft carriers and drone aircraft, we should stop for a moment and consider how much safer the world would be if those highly skilled jobs were put to dealing with health crises, food shortages and environmental sustainability rather than wars and destruction.
