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 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 Village Hall RG8 0QY (near Wallingford) in South Oxfordshire. We have a full schedule of events arranged for the coming months including talks on Arnhem, the Cold War, the Falklands and the Battle of the Atlantic.
Eminent historian and broadcaster Dr. Helen Fry will be giving our next talk on Wednesday 25th September 2019 on how the British gathered important intelligence by covert means from senior German POW’s.
We are always looking for new articles about your family’s military experiences for this website and also for additional speakers on specific military subjects – see our latest Speaker wishlist.
Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and on Facebook or through our website www.bmmhs.org about future talks and activities, any articles you wish to be included and if you know of any speakers who could help us.
