2015 John Turner Memorial Lecture
Global Perspectives on 1916
Presented by Professor Keith Jeffery
1916 was a pivotal year in the First World War. By its end, the leading belligerent powers were inescapably committed to 'fight to the finish' and hope of a compromise for peace was lost. Taking in the Eastern and Western Fronts, as well as Africa, Asia, America and the war at sea, Professor Jeffery will look at the year that was.
