When their wives join the Women’s Peace Movement, Nobby, Tommy and Ken, pals in the Territorial Army, treat it as a joke. But as the women become more involved in demonstrations the men become the laughing stock of their TA battalion. Finally, the women, attempting to make their husbands give up the army, go on sexual strike with the slogan “No Nooky Against the Nukes”. A wry, amusing look at the nuclear disarmament issue set in the author’s North of England.
