UON Engage and WEA Hunter present the John Turner Memorial Lecture.
The year 1916 was pivotal to the course of the First World War. By its end, the leading belligerent powers were inescapably committed to a ‘fight to the finish’ and hope of a compromise for peace was lost. Taking in the Eastern and Western Fronts, as well as Africa, Asia, America and the war at sea, Professor Keith Jeffery will apply local, global and imperial perspectives to his examination of this critical phase of the war.
Keith Jeffery is a Professor of British History at Queen’s University Belfast with a distinguished international career spanning more than 30 years. He is a world authority on World War I, the award-winning author of The Secret History of MI6 – the first official history of the British Secret Intelligence Service – and chair of the board of Irish Historical Studies.
