SHOT AT DAWN

In WW1, over 300 soldiers of the British and Commonwealth armies were executed by firing squad. Some for desertion and cowardice. Some for simply sleeping at their posts. Many of these men were traumatised by shell-shock. Not until some 90 years later did they receive posthumous pardons from the British Government, after a long campaign helped in part by the publication of Private Peaceful and the play that followed.
