  • Finished with the War: A Soldier’s Declaration - Wikisource, the free online library
    1917 A copy of the letter as read out in the House of Commons Lt Siegfried Sassoon 3rd Batt Royal Welsh Fusiliers July 1917 I am making this statement as an act of wilful defiance of military authority because I believe that the war is being deliberately prolonged by those who have the power to end it I am a soldier convinced that I am acting on behalf of soldiers I believe that the war upon which I entered as a war of defence and liberation has now become a war of agression and conquest I believe that the purposes for which I and my fellow soldiers entered upon this war should have been so clearly stated as to have made it impossible to change them and that had this been done the objects which actuated us would now be attainable by negotiation I have seen and endured the sufferings of the troops and I can no longer be a party to prolong these sufferings for ends which I believe to be evil and unjust I am not protesting against the conduct of the war but against the political errors and insincerities for which the fighting men are being sacrificed On behalf of those who are suffering now I make this protest against the deception which is being practised upon them also I believe it may help to destroy the callous complacency with which the majority of those at home regard the continuance of agonies which they do not share and which they have not enough imagination to realise This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published before January 1 1923 It may be copyrighted outside the U S see Help Public domain Public domain Public domain false false Retrieved from https en
