    The Road to Passchendaele
    • Saturday 11 November, 2pm - 3.30pm.
    • The Surrey Heritage Annual Lecture with Richard van Emden.
    • The Road to Passchendaele is the next volume in the highly-regarded series of books from the best-selling First World War historian Richard van Emden. Once again, using the winning formula of diaries and memoirs, and above all original photographs taken on illegally-held cameras by the soldiers themselves, Richard tells the story of 1917, of life both in and out of the line culminating in perhaps the most dreaded battle of them all, the Battle of Passchendaele. The viscous mud in which these men fought has come to symbolise the horror of the Great War.
    • Richard van Emden has interviewed over 270 veterans of the Great War and has written nineteen books about it including The Trench, The Last Fighting Tommy and The Soldier’s War, (all top ten bestsellers), Boy Soldiers of the Great War, Prisoners of the Kaiser, and, most recently, The Somme. His books sales now exceed 650,000 copies. Richard has worked on more than twenty-five television programmes on the Great War, including Britain’s Last Tommies and the award-winning Roses of No Man’s Land, Britain’s Boy Soldiers, War Horse: the Real Story and Hidden Histories: WW1's Forgotten Photographs.
    • Surrey History Centre, 130 Goldsworth Road, Woking, GU21 6ND
    • £5 includes refreshments.
