Bishop Bell and the nuclear threat

True to form, Bishop George Bell was as strongly opposed to nuclear weapons as he was to any other form of targeting civilians. It was just never accorded the same prominence as his views on the bombing of Dresden, which ruffled establishment feathers longer and harder. Peter Walker, later to become the Bishop of Ely, knew Bell at the time and later wrote an account of Bishop Bell’s views on the subject, which appeared in 1986. Click the image to download a copy.
