History talk by Professor Gary Sheffield

November 29, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Professor Gary Sheffield from University of Wolverhampton at this free event for people interested in history.

British Army Fighting Methods on the Western Front in 1917 with KSI1 actions.

“In this lecture, Professor Gary Sheffield assesses how the British army fought during 1917, the year of Passchendaele. Contrary to the Blackadder stereotype, Haig’s Army enjoyed some success, as well as encountering some setbacks, applying the lessons of the Somme and incorporating new tactics and technology into its fighting methods. The lecture will use the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry as an example of a British regiment in 1917.”
