Jeremy Paxman

Great Britain’s Great War

Venue: Headfort Arms Hotel – Meath County Council Stage

Traditional images reinforce the view that the Great War was a pointless waste of life. So why did the nation fight so willingly and endure suffering for so long? The journalist uses a wealth of first-hand source material to explain how life and identity in Britain were completely transformed by the experience, often for the better.
