Simon Justice will give a presentation called "The organisation of defeat." Where he will look at the BEF in the build-up to the German Spring Offensives and how the army reorganisation and loss of three infantry battalions from each British division affected the tactical and strategic situation during the 1918 battles of the Somme and Lys. Simon Justice is an independent scholar and author who has written about the 1918 Army Reorganization.
Doors will open at 7:00pm, with the presentation starting at 7:30pm. The talk is free although a small donation is encouraged to pay for the running of the branch. There is car parking at the Club which can be accessed via St Anne’s Lane off the Causeway in Godmanchester. Non-WFA members most welcome.
