In this talk, award-winning author Mark Bostridge will chart one of the most momentous years in English history. 1914 was a year that took a sudden and dramatic turn for the unexpected for England. War with Germany, so often imagined and predicted, finally broke out when people were least prepared for it.

Mark Bostridge is the renowned biographer of both Vera Brittain and Florence Nightingale, and the author of the newly-published The Fateful Year. England 1914.
