World War I Lecture Series
Lecture 2: Richard Van Emden, ‘Meeting the Enemy’ - what it is like to meet the enemy in warfare, both on the Home Front and the Western Front - “There is a lot of new and original research which has both fascinated and shocked audiences alike. This lecture aims to fuse the Home Front to the Western Front so that people do not see them in isolation” – Richard Van Emden. He is perhaps most famous for his work on The Last Tommies and the biography of Harry Patch. He has been involved in a lot of documentaries for the BBC.
