1918: The Final Year of the Great War to ArmisticePavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

In the centenary of the Armistice, bestselling First World War historian Richard van Emden tells the story of 1918, of both the ferocious spring offensive that so nearly brought victory for the Germans in the West, and the tenacious British rearguard fight that thwarted them.

From diaries, memoirs and original, illegally-taken photographs, he also tells the vivid story of the Allied breakthrough and the return to open warfare that was to bring victory in November 1918.
