Now the War is Over talk given by Dr Daniel Weinbren
16 Jun

How did Britain respond to the momentous events of 1919 and 1920 as it adjusted to peace after four years of war? How did the British people cope with the massive changes and challenges that confronted them? Dr Weinbren will answer these questions, explain what happened in every sphere of life and show that even today we are still dealing with the consequences of those years of transition. Across Europe were revolutions, a war for independence in Ireland, and widespread race riots in Britain. Most servicemen simply wanted to come home to a land fit for heroes, to their families and a secure job, but for most that didn’t happen. There was no return to the old days, too much had been lost. Dr Weinbren will give us a fascinating insight into how the Great War changed the direction of the nation.
