ONLINE: 'John Terraine as a Military Historian, Revisited' a presentation by Prof Gary Sheffield
13 Sep

The presentation will be live and online. 

To mark the centenary year of John Terraine's birth, the President of The Western Front Association, Professor Gary Sheffield, will give a talk that reviews John's career as a historian of the Great War and assesses his significance. In this presentation Gary will look at John Terraine's feud with Basil Liddell Hart, and how his work fares today in the light of more recent scholarship.

John Terraine was the founding president of The Western Front Association and was one of the early revisionist historians who 'swam against the tide' of popular misconceptions about the First World War.
