"1941:High Noon for Hitler, 12th February 1941 to 5th December 1941" By February 1941 Germany had conquered Western Europe and Norway, but Britain fought on having achieved a number of important victories over the Italians. In 1941 Germany will conquer Yugoslavia, Greece and Crete while fighting the British in the desert, across the North Atlantic and in the skies over British and European cities. The British will achieve victory in East Africa, Iraq and Syria as they slowly recover their strength before the war takes a new turn, with a German invasion of the USSR that will take them to the very gates of Moscow...

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.
