We are delighted to welcome back to the branch Christina Holstien who is one of our most popular speakers.
As those of you who have been to one her talks before will know, she is an expert on all aspects of the Battle of Verdun and has written many guidebooks to the area.
Her talk this year will focus on a largely unknown period of the Battle and casts light on the first three critical months of fighting there. It explains the decision to change the original German plan for the Verdun offensive and extend the action to the Left Bank of the River Meuse.
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.
