Friends Lecture: The Day of Battle: Wykehamists and the British Army in 1918
James Webster and Michael Wallis

Thursday, January 17, 2019 18:30 - 20:00

Whilst the great battles of 1916 and 1917, the Somme and Third Ypres, are widely known, the battles fought by British and Dominion forces in 1918 are less studied. Yet these were the battles which brought the German army on the Western Front to its knees and may fairly be represented as the British army’s greatest victory. In our talk, we explore how the British had come to be so successful in the conduct of war by 1918 and why this success has been unfairly neglected. We illustrate this year of victory with stories from the lives of some of the Wykehamists who fought in 1918.
