'The Battle of The Aisne, Chemin des Dames & The French Mutiny' - Talk by Philip Stevens
19 Mar

Philip Stevens is a former army officer and author of The Great War Explained, a beginners guide to the Great War which is now in it’s third edition.

An experienced tour guide whom the historian Professor Sir Anthony Seldon writes "...simply brilliant. I have never been on any trip, anywhere with a better informed, more passionate or magnetic speaker".

Everyone thinks of the Aisne sector of the Western Front as a French story, but it was also profoundly important to the British, particularly in 1914, 1917 and 1918.

Members of the Western Front Association and non-members are equally welcome to attend. We ask for a modest £3 donation on the door to assist in covering room charges and speaker expenses. The Club's licensed bar is available for use by all attending our meetings.

Any new visitors will be assured of a welcoming and friendly atmosphere among a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
