O události

Dr Robert Lyman FRHistS is a writer, historian. He is a Research Fellow at the Changing Character of War Centre, Pembroke College, University of Oxford. Also a veteran, after finishing a twenty year career in the British Army in 2001 he has published widely on the Second World War in Europe, North Africa and Asia. His book "Victory to Defeat" co-authored by Lord Richard Dannat, is a a salutary warning for modern Britain, detailing the history of the decline of an army from the triumph of victory in 1918 to defeat in 1940. With the world teetering on the edge of another great conflagration we should examine how preared we are for a major or even total war within the next five years.

What is in it for me? 

1. What happened in the Inter War years that made the British Army so unready for World War 2?

2. Why were these shortfalls not corrected in time for war?

3. Is modern Britain and the West failing to prepare for a pre-war world?
