To support Thematic studies focusing on Warfare and British Society, Anglia has created a range of tours exploring the relationship between war and society and the changing nature and experience of warfare itself.
This 2-day battlefield tour will look at issues such as tactics, weaponry, communications and the morality of warfare as they changed through the twentieth century.
Beginning on the Ypres Salient with an examination of how trench warfare developed on the Western Front, paying particular attention to the weapons available to the British Army at the time, students will see how warfare developed after 1914 as well as having the opportunity to attend the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate.
The second day begins on the ground held by the British Army in 1940, examining the difference in preparations for this war and how Blitzkrieg theory, born in the final months of the Great War, shaped the conflict that would follow.
