This week on Warfare!

As Autumn dawns and Remembrance Sunday approaches, Warfare features a First World War story a little different from the norm: a look at the courts martial of a British soldier executed for murder during the First World War. Murderous Tommies by Mark Dunning and Julian Putkowski – an active supporter of the 'Shot at Dawn' war pardons campaign – explores the details of the case of Alexander Chisholm who, in April 1915, shot a fellow soldier and was executed.

Read more about the authors, their extensive research into the subject and ideas for future projects in the Author Spotlight.
