This tour in open to the general public and is run in association with the Western Front Association, non-members are encouraged to join The WFA.

Dr Jack Sheldon will be joining Clive Harris as in previous years. Together they will consider the early phases of the Great War through a number of key locations from both a British and German perspective. This year these include Villers Cotteret, Nery, Fismes, Le Ferte-sous-Joarre Memorial and the excellent Meaux Museum as we consider the retreat to the Marne.

This is followed by a full day will look at the Battle of the Aisne in September 1914 including the actions at Soupir, Pont-Arcy, Vendresse and Cerny Crossroads. A visit to the Soissons Memorial completes our study of the area.  

As in previous WFA tours the initial day to day plan is for WFA members with a connection to the Arras Battlefields so we can formulate a personalised itinerary for the group.
