All three have connections with Birmingham University. Jonathan is a Reader, Alex an Assistant Professor in the Social and Cultural History of the First World War and John is a retired professor. They discuss how the historiography of the Great War has changed since the 1970s, current development and where they think there are still gaps in the literature.
