Great Battles

Mark Connelly and Stefan Goebel

Great Battles

  • The Great Battles Series. The story of the world's most important battles — how they were fought, how they have been commemorated, and the long historical shadows that they have cast.
  • The story of Ypres — the sleepy city which became the site of some of largest and most devastating battles of the Great War.
  • Moves away from traditional British and Commonwealth rememberances of the battles to compare all combatant nations views on events and commemorations.
  • How the region has been remembered, from the immediate aftermath to the present day — and what this tells us.
