'Soldiers of the Empire' international, intercultural encounters in the Great War, then and now by Professor Peter Stanley (University of New South Wales at Australian Defence Force Academy)
Peter Stanley looks at the ways the Great War opened up connections between parts of the British Empire and its peoples, suggesting how the war created connections - ironically, connections which time obscured as national identities and sentiments also stimulated by the Great War came to dominate the way we think about it. He'll draw on research for his recent books on Indians, Anzacs and Britons in the war.
