The Doughboys 1917 - 1918 Mike Sheil
16 Feb

When the United States entered the cataclysm of the Great War the global conflict had already lasted three long years. This talk describes what the American forces saw when they arrived at the Western Front, and their feelings and actions as they encountered bitter fighting, obliterated villages, vast cemeteries, and massive destruction. In 2016 Michael was commissioned by the US National WW1 Museum and Memorial and the US State Department to create a special outdoor exhibition of the American battlefields. This exhibition was viewed by over 6 million people in the UK and US. Mike’s fascinating talk is illustrated with some of the thousands of amazing photographs he has taken since 2005, showing the battlefields as they are today.
