The Long Shadow: The Great War and International Memory, 1914-2014

Professor David Reynolds FBA

1914-18 casts a long shadow across the 20th century. This lecture explores some of the ways it has been remembered and memorialised, arguing that each country has its own Great War and that British memory is especially distinctive - still shaping attitudes to continental Europe in our day.
