Women at the Front by Andy Robertshaw
One of the greatest authorities on the Great War and a branch favourite, Andy Robertshaw will examine the role played by women as ’the war to end all wars’ evolved into Total War. From encouraging their men to ’do their bit for king and country’ women moved into the factories, on to the land and into the battle zone.
Andy’s unique style is always well received by members and we look forward to his thoughts on one of the most important topics that changed British society both during and after the Great War.
