Peter Hart invites us to reflect on the centenary of the end of WWI and draws on the experience of both generals and ordinary soldiers, and dwells with equal weight on strategy, tactics and individual experience, to bring to life the nature of the dramatic fighting on the Western Front in the final crucial eight weeks of of the Great War. His talk will be illustrated by extracts from the poignant accounts of the veterans.
Peter Hart is the oral historian at the Imperial War Museum and is a household name in the field of military history for those with an interest in first hand accounts from the veterans themselves. He has written extensively on the First World War. His books include Gallipoli, The Great War and Voices from the Front.
‘All good history books should be an assault on myth, and in Gallipoli Peter Hart mounts a supremely effective attack’ – Daily Mail
