Rodney Atwood’s talk begins with five British 'heroes' on the morning of 11 November 1918. He examines briefly the failure of early offensive plans with the two sides roughly balanced; German mistakes and the entry of the United States; how the stalemate was finally broken in 1918. The talk looks ahead to why the peace failed and finishes by returning to the five ‘heroes’ and a sixth one who joins the story in March, 1918.
Rodney read history and served three years in the Royal Tank Regiment. He is the author of several books on military history including a biography of General Lord Rawlinson, who commanded Fourth Army on the Western Front.
