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.

The Gurkhas; 200 years of service to Britain
Gurkhas have been part of the British Army for almost 200 years, but who are these fearsome Nepalese fighters?
“Better to die than be a coward” is the motto of the world-famous Nepalese Gurkha soldiers who are an integral part of the British Army.
‘The Task Force’s victory in the Falkland Islands gave freedom back to the Islanders, releasing a vibrant energy to develop their lives. This fascinating compendium is another triumph in the “Glimpses” series!’ Major General Dair Farrar-Hockley MC, 2 Para in the Falklands
To mark the 40th anniversary, the British Modern Military History Society has compiled a book of memories and stories of those who served in the Falklands. The latest book in the Glimpses of War series, Glimpses of the Falklands War, has now been published and is available on Amazon. As with other volumes of Glimpses of War, all profits will go to the charity Blind Veterans UK. #blindveterans
