The pigeons of Passchendaele – and why animals still suffer and die in modern conflicts

Gervase Phillips's picture

Dear all,

Forgive the naked self-publicty, but with the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Passchendaele offensive due next month, I thought subscribers might be interested in this short piece and perhaps, more broadly, we might consider the place of animals in modern warfare?
