Welcome to the British Modern Military History Society

Welcome to the newly formed British Modern Military History Society. Our aim is to organise talks and trips for anyone interested in the military history across the globe over the last 200 years from Napoleonic times to the present day.   

Our talks will be given by writers, academics, former military personnel, and experts and will cover a wide variety of topics and events – hopefully an interesting cocktail to encourage you to join us.  Based in Woodcote (near Wallingford) in South Oxfordshire,  BMMHS will be looking to organize talks or an event every month from the autumn onwards. 

Your feedback and input is also essential to us so we can organise activities that appeal to you. We look forward to welcoming you to our talks or events over the next few months.  

For more information and details of our events, please contact us by email on info@bmmhs.org
