A series of podcasts commissioned by UCL INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY EDUCATION PROGRAMME to mark the CENTENARY of the BATTLE OF AMIENS on 8 August 1918. In August 2018, students from across the United Kingdom joined students from France, the United States, Canada and Australia on the Western Front to commemorate the Battle of Amiens. The following podcasts, recorded during that battlefield tour, tell the story of the Battle of Amiens in the wider context of the First World War and the road to armistice. In this podcast, we join PROFESSOR SIR HEW STRACHAN for the last of his morning briefings when he looks at how the Battle of Amiens triggered a series of Allied offensives that brought the war with Germany to an end just a few months later, in November 1918. PRODUCTION | ChromeRadio for UCL INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY EDUCATION PROGRAMME | Executive Producer - Simon Bendry | Producer - Catriona Oliphant | Post-production - Chris Sharp.
