It often surprises me, knowing that wargamers are ardent historians and avid readers, how little so many of us share with the others in our fraternity. The title of this piece (which I know you opened up because it could be almost anything, couldn’t it?) is the title of the 2018 series of lectures held in London at the National Army Museum at 11.30 a.m. every Friday during the summer months. This year there are half a dozen talks by well-known historians with some value for the wargamer.
May 4th, ‘The British Fiasco in Norway 1940.’
May 11th, ‘The British Army and Victory in Tunisia.’
May 25th, ‘Weapons and Wounds in the First World War.’
June 15th, ‘Romania and the First World War.’
June 29th,‘The Battle of Dettingen 1743.’
That’s just a handful. The Romanian talk supports an exhibition on Romanian forces, and there’s a substantial event programme throughout the year on ‘Special Forces.’ Worth having a look at on
