‘Britannia’s unruly stepchildren’, Americans in the British Armed Forces– Michael O’Brien
21 Jul

This talk is not about America’s entry into the Great War in 1917, but instead looks at the lives and experiences of a variety of American citizens who took matters into their own hands well before America joined the war and crossed the Atlantic to join the British armed services. Michael is a retired history teacher and published author whose major research project was a study of American citizens who served under British colours in the Great War. He is an expert in this field, and his fascinating talk is not one to miss!
