Battle of the Somme

Military historian Richard Doherty will deliver a talk on the Battle of the Somme at the Tower Museum on June 15.

This lecture seeks to place the 1916 Somme campaign in its overall context as part of an Entente strategy involving all three major theatres of war in Europe, the Eastern, Southern and Western, as well as the war at sea and in the air; and in theatres outside Europe.

It will also look at the rebellions that occurred in many countries, and at German subversion in the still neutral United States of America.
