CVHF2021 talks by Jonathan Fennell

11. FIGHTING THE PEOPLE’S WAR

Jonathan Fennell, a leading Second World War scholar, will put forward an unprecedented, panoramic history of the ‘citizen armies’ of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in World War II. Drawing on new sources to reveal the true wartime experience of the ordinary rank and file, he will fundamentally challenge our understanding of the War and of the relationship between conflict and socio-political change.
