Description

1914-18 casts a long shadow across the 20th century. This lecture explores some of the ways it has been remembered and memorialised, arguing that each country has its own Great War and that British memory is especially distinctive - still shaping attitudes to continental Europe in our day. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-long-shadow-the-great-war-and-international-memory-1914-2014 Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
