The Battles of the Somme and Verdun are over, but the suffering continues. The French have a new commander with a vision of a grand new offensive to win the war yet the Germans have plans of their own and in Russia trouble is brewing. A detailed account of the events of 1917, available in one and two hour durations. Prices vary depending on distance from Nottingham, and I will work for less for charities.Views: 385 | Enquiries: 1
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.
