Description

Bryn Hammond - Cambrai


Bryn Hammond is the foremost authority on tank warfare, as long-serving members witnessed on Bryn’s first visit to Northamptonshire WFA in 2004. This Remembrance-tide, he uncovers the myth of the first tank versus tank battle in history. In reviewing Bryn’s book Cambrai, Michael Orr commented “Hammond has not written a dry account of technology and doctrine. The stories of the men who fought at Cambrai emerge throughout and the human dimension is never forgotten. Personal accounts are deployed to base the narrative and analysis firmly in reality. The result is a book which will grip the general reader’s attention and be a constant reference for the professional historian. It is a model of how to write a battle study.”

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by early November 2014.
