Malcolm Sime joined the British First World War Studies MA programme at the University of Birmingham in 2012 and graduated in 2014. He says the more he learns, the more he feels he has yet to learn about this complex and fascinating conflict which shaped the world in which we live today.

 

`Malcolm's presentation will examine the performance of the 66th (2nd East Lancs) Division and the British system of defence in depth on 21 and 22 March 1918. He will cover the political and military background, the quality and training of the troops involved, both British and German, the planning and implementation of the defences in that sector and the events of the first two days of the Kaiserschlacht.
