'From Crisis to Victory 1918' a talk by Professor John Derry
14 Jun

We are delighted to welcome Professor Derry for another talk on the First World War. On this occasion he will cover the events which took place in 1918, the last year of the war, starting with the crisis of the German Spring Offensives through to the Advance to Victory during the last 100 Days and ending with the Armistice on 11 November 1918.


An alumnus of Gateshead Grammar School and Emmanuel College, Cambridge, after national service in the RAF, John Derry taught at both Cambridge and the London School of Economics before returning to the North East to join the History Department at Newcastle University, where he ultimately became Professor of History and is remembered also as an outstanding Public Orator
