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.

Next BMMHS Event

The Women Who Flew for Hitler tells the extraordinary story of the only two female test pilots who served Nazi Germany, yet whose decisions and actions put them on opposite sides of history.
Brilliant glider pilot Hanna Reitsch became the world’s first woman to fly a helicopter, and later tested rocket planes, and even a manned version of a prototype cruise missile – the V1 flying bomb or doodlebug. A fanatical Nazi, in the last days of the war she begged Hitler to let her fly him to safety from Berlin.
Her nemesis, Melitta von Stauffenberg, test pilot for the Stuka dive-bombers that were synonymous with the Blitzkrieg, and exceptional aeronautical engineer, was part Jewish. In July 1944 Melitta secretly supported the most famous attempt on Hitler’s life, yet despite arrest her story did not end there… This talk takes you not only into the extraordinary lives of these women, but behind the scenes of the book.
