The French Army Mutinies of 1917

Wednesday 10th January 2018


The French Army Mutinies of 1917
Battlefield Historian François Wicart
A lecture and sandwich lunch 
12.30 - 2.00 pm
Wednesday 10th January 2018 
All Hallows by the Tower 
Byward St,
London EC3R 5BJ
(Nearest Tube Tower Hill) 


The Centenary of  1917 in Britain has been dominated by the memory of Passchendaele. Yet the offensives in the Spring that led to the French Army Mutiny, and continued until October, were more influential.  It is probably the largest battle on the Western Front that most people have never heard of. François Wicart, the historian and battlefield guide who gave us an excellent talk on Verdun is going to talk about the French Army Mutiny of 1917.   

 

The event includes a sandwich lunch and a glass of wine. If you would like to attend this lunchtime talk, please make a donation of £30 for each attendee (£25 for members of the Battlefields Trust) and email your name, contact number and any special requirements (dietary/mobility) to helen.perry@battlefieldstrust.com On receipt, email confirmation will be sent together with directions to the venue. If you have any questions, please ring 07768 102 594. We look forward to welcoming you.
