THE ORIGINS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR

These and other questions will be answered by Professor Gary Sheffield of the University of Wolverhampton. A renowned historian of this era, Professor Sheffield frequently broadcasts on television and radio. In the past, he has lectured at The Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst and at the UK's Joint Services Command and Staff College.
