Just before lockdown number 1, the presentation by Luci Gosling was 'captured' and this is now available. 

 

For the first half of the 20th Century, Fortunino Matania drew many iconic moments, including the sinking of the Titanic, for the popular illustrated magazine 'The Sphere'. Between 1914 and 1918 he produced weekly paintings which recorded - in breathtaking detail - aspects of the war. His famous picture 'Goodbye, Old Man' became one of the most emotive image of the war. In order to produce these illustrations he visited the front line, putting himself in danger to gather accurate material. In this talk Luci Gosling shares numerous anecdotes of his time in the front line as a 'special' artist.

No trouble. Only pleased to be able to bring these to as wide an audience as possible. The WFA's webinars are so successful that the zoom capacity (for the 'live' events) are often reached.

In this presentation Andrea Hetherington talks about the war widows and how they were treated after World War 1. War widows were invited to the ceremonies at Westminster Abbey and the Cenotaph on the occasion of the Unveiling of the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior on 11 November 1920, the first time they had been given official recognition at a national post war commemoration. But what does this reveal about the place of Britain’s Great War widows in remembrance culture?

Paul Knight 'Lessons from the Mud'...The 55th (West Lancashire) Division participated in two battles during the Third Battle of Ypres on 31 July and 20 September, 1917. The division’s commander, Major-General Jeudwine requested ‘After Action Reports’ from both attacks. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only such collection to have survived. Written within four days of leaving the trenches, this is a unique set of first hand accounts from Commanding Officers to Private soldiers and offers an unparalleled insight into 'Passchendaele'. In this talk, Paul sheds light on this division's experience of this monumental battle.

Talking to us from Canada was Bill Stewart "The Centre Cannot Hold: Arras 1918 & the Failure of German Counterattack Doctrine".

 

In this presentation, which was delivered 'live' to an online audience Dr Bill Stewart, talks about the German defensive doctrine in 1917-1918. The centrepiece of this doctrine was that of the counterattack allied with a flexible defence-in-depth to frustrate Allied attacks. The Germans could deliver punishing counter blows that violently overthrew Allied advances. This presentation examines four case studies of German multi-battalion counterattacks in 1917 and 1918 at Arras based on Canadian and German records. The presentation will explain why, despite favourable circumstances, these counterattack in 1918 failed unlike 1917.
