about

AGAINST THEIR WILL is the story of Conscientious Objectors during World War 1 in England. This is a fictional account based on actual events.

Conscientious objectors were opposed to the war, seeing it as a war for no purpose, a war based on propaganda, a war about chauvinism and prejudice, a war let loose by the failure of international diplomats. It was not a war to end war, but a war to create animosity and new hatred. Some conscientious objectors opposed it on religious grounds, but they were also treated as though they were aiding the enemy.

Those who refused to be conscripted where vilified, cursed as cowards, imprisoned, bashed, tortured, treated as traitors, and sometimes killed in one way or another. There was no sympathy for those who refused to aid the war effort. And yet the C.O.s continued in their opposition to the war, despite the pressure, despite the hatred directed at them.

This story has another aspect, that of occultism, Kevin Darwin while in prison, has various psychic experiences. He meets the mysterious Gita Lume, who appears to have uncanny powers and knowledge about his deepest secrets.

The army, concerned about the number of conscientious objectors, trial a program of forced conversion, using psychological "brainwashing" techniques. The program comes to a premature end when it meets up with Gita Lume, an expert on hypnosis and psychic skills.
