Words of War Book Festival | Jonathan Boff in conversation with Professor Sir Hew Strachan

The Black Watch Castle and Museum, Perth
21st September | 5.00pm-6.00pm
The First World War from the German perspective

Jonathan Boff draws on extensive research in the German archives to offer a history of the First World War from the other side of the barbed wire. He revises conventional explanations of why the Germans lost with an in-depth analysis of the nature of command as modern warfare was born. Haig's Enemy views the Great War through the eyes of one of Germany's leading generals, Crown Prince Rupprecht, shedding new light on many of the controversies of the Western Front.

In conversation with Professor Sir Hew Strachan, one of the world's foremost experts on the First World War, Jonathan will discuss the view of the Western Front as a highly dynamic battlespace, both physical and intellectual, where three armies struggled not only to out-fight, but also to
out think, their enemy. The consequences of falling behind in the race to adapt would be more terrible than could be imagined.

Tickets £8
