Welcome to the British Modern Military History Society

Welcome to the British Modern Military History Society.  Formed in early 2019, we organise monthly talks for anyone interested in military history over the last 200 years from Nelson’s times to the present day.   

With top quality talks given by writers, academics, former military personnel, and experts in their field with a wide variety of topics, we are based in Woodcote Village Hall RG8 0QY (near Wallingford) in South Oxfordshire.   We can accommodate up to 100 people at each talk in pleasant surroundings, offering a warm and welcoming evening out.
