I Ain’t Marching Anymore
“With I Ain’t Marching Anymore, Chris Lombardi has given us both a thorough history of military dissent going back to the American Revolution and a vivid series of wartime set pieces that bring these dissenters to life. The result is a highly original book, at once scholarly and intimate, exposing the clash between personal conviction and social expectation whose significance stretches far beyond the battlefield.”
From The New Press and journalist Chris Lombardi comes I Ain’t Marching Anymore, “a highly original book, at once scholarly and intimate, exposing the clash between personal conviction and social expectation whose significance stretches far beyond the battlefield.”

“Tens of thousands of books have been written about the American military in battle. But this is the first I’ve ever seen that tells the full story of more than two centuries of brave and stubborn dissenters who questioned whether these wars should be fought at all. Chris Lombardi honors these heroes with the vivid and lively narrative that they deserve.”
