World War 1 | Military History | WW1 | 1910's

The British and German armies face each other on the Western Front. US troops have yet to arrive in any great number, the French are exhausted and the Russians have been defeated. The Germans are going to launch a last final "Big Push" to win the war before time runs out. Casualties will mount but amidst the suffering the BEF will endure, and go on to defeat the German army in the field. Available in 2 hour and one hour formats its a detailed examination of the events leading up to the end of the First World War (prices vary slightly for travel from Nottingham, and on whether its a one or two hour talk. I also offer discounts to charities).

About Gareth Howell

I regularly appear on BBC Radio Nottingham as an historical adviser, most notably as the military historian when Armed Forces Day was hosted at Nottingham. I have also spoken on BBC Notts on topics as diverse as Richard 3rd, the tanks, the home guard and the Easter Rising (for which I also appeared on a programme with BBC Ulster). I am also a regular guest speaker for Abingdon Museum in Oxfordshire, the British Biomedical Institute, Buxton Museum and various Rotary clubs. I have done some TV work for BBC Ulster and for Channel 4. If you have a particular interest for a history talk that's not on the list, feel free to ask if I'd be able to field a talk on the subject, after all the worst I could say is no!

I am a confident and engaging speaker after many years teaching in a Nottingham Secondary school.
