Description

Great War: Unknown War 2017-18 Launch Event

Keynote Lecture: Professor Gary Sheffield, University of Wolverhampton

In 1918, the armies of the British Empire were engaged in war on a global scale. Men from places as diverse as Southampton and Sydney, Dublin and Delhi, were fighting on fronts as distant from each other as Belgium, Italy, Iraq and East Africa. In this lecture, Professor Gary Sheffield will examine both the composition of these forces and their military effectiveness. Finally, he asks what the campaigns of 1918 can tell us about the response of the British Empire to the demands of total war.

Refreshments served from 5.30, the lecture will begin at 6pm.
