I'm still hacking my way through Chris 'Leftie' Harman's People's History of the World' and have now reached WW1. He talks about growing disillusionment with the war among soldiers and the 1917 mutinies among the French and Italian armies. He then goes on to state flat out, in 1917, '....and five days of bloody rebellion by up to 100,000 soldiers in the British base camp at Etaples, near Boulogne. The British Generals ended the rebellion by making concessions and then executed its leaders, keeping the whole affair secret'. I'm aware there was a bit of monocled mutineering going on but 'bloody rebellion' '100k soldiers'? What was all that about then? Is he right about what happened, or wildly innaccurate?
