Siegfried Sassoon This is a piece about Sassoon on the Peace Pledge Union’s web site. Whatever you think about the PPU, this is an excellent piece. I have read many times about Sassoon’s declaration being read out in parliament, however I have never come across an account of the proceedings until I found this item. Very, very interesting.
