The presentation will be live and online.
Nick Lloyd will talk about his latest book, 'The Western Front', the first of a trilogy on the history of the Great War. Drawing upon the latest scholarship, Nick will re-examine the fighting in France and Belgium between 1914-18, and explain the achievements that have been too long obscured by legends of mud, blood and futility.
Far from being an arena of static, stale attrition - and despite mistakes and wrong turns along the way - the Western Front was a 'cauldron of war' that saw unprecedented innovation, adaptation and tactical development.
Nick's book has been given rave reviews by, among others Simon Heffer (Daily Telegraph) and Lawrence James (The Times).
