"How the Great War ended" by Dr Rodney Attwood
07 Jun

Dr Attwood's talk begins with looking at five British 'heroes' on the Western Front and elsewhere on the morning of 11 November, 1918; examines briefly the failure of early offensive plans; German mistakes and the entry of the United States; how the stalemate was finally broken in 1918; and analyses factors in the Allied victory including 'The Hundred Days'. The talk looks ahead to why the peace failed and finishes by returning to the five 'heroes' and a sixth one who joins the story in March, 1918
