The First World War in History

Dan Todman, 'The First World War in History', Spring 2013

This is one of two keynote lectures at the BCMH conference ‘Re-engaging with the First World War’ held in Birmingham in November 2012. Dan Todman addresses developments in the cultural and social history of the war over the last decade and considers the challenges of organising a meaningful centenary which will place the war in its proper historical context.
