1916-17 in Context
Two years ago we were commemorating the centenary of the start of the First World War. In two years time in 1918, we will be commemorating its end with the centenary of the signing of the armistice in Versailles on 11th November 1918 that officially ended that dreadful four year war.
This year, 2016, we will be remembering key events from the British viewpoint in 1916 and their influence on developments in 1917. However, Graham Tyack believes that these should be set in the broader context of the wider war, which had quickly developed into a conflict between the Triple Entente of the United Kingdom, France and Russia and the central powers of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy.
He has therefore prepared a display which is available in the Haddenham Community Library.
If you can't get along to see his display, you may like to read Graham's illustrated article by clicking on the PDF below the image on this page
