About Event:

From Trenches to Beaches - Brigadiers of the British Army in France & Norway, 1940

Join us for this investigation of the aftermath of the military failures in France & Norway during 1940. Dispelling the popular misconception that this had led to a far-reaching clear out of the officer corps using the Brigadier class of the British Army, Phil McCarty will show that infact some officers of the campaigns were to thrived.

Don't miss this opportunity to delve into the history of WW2 and the individuals and decision makers, as well new ranks of brigadiers, who were to emerge to shape the later battles of the war. This is a Friends of the Museum talk.
