A special Haddenham Village Society November meeting will form part of Haddenham's Commemoration of the outbreak of the First World War
On Thursday 27th November, in the village hall at 8.00pm
Professor Gary Sheffield will present a talk on
THE ORIGINS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR
What were the causes of the War? Did the Government sleepwalk into conflict or were international tensions responsible?
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. He has many publications to his name — copies of a book will be available.
