We are delighted to announce the release of a series of podcasts, commissioned by UCL Institute of Education’s First World War Centenary Education Programme, to mark the centenary this month of the Battle of Amiens, 8-11 August 1918. 

In the first two podcasts, Professor Sir Hew Strachan considers the Battle of Amiens – in the context of the First World War, the battle itself, and how it triggered a series of interlocking victories for the Allies that brought to an end Germany’s war in the West. 

From Amiens to Armistice – A General Reflects is a docudrama performed by Nicholas Rowe, based on the diaries of General Lord Rawlinson, commander of the Fourth Army at the Battle of Amiens, in the Churchill Archives Centre, University of Cambridge.

In 2018, as the Royal Air Force marked its 100th birthday, the Institute for the Study of War and Strategy, School of International Relations, University of St Andrews, convened a conference of leading scholars, practitioners, and representatives of business from across the world to reflect upon the operation of air power over the past few decades and what the future holds.  In this series, we hear from a number of contributors to that conference – below are details of when the podcasts will be available.  We hope you enjoy them. 

For more air power listening, do try our series on The Story of Air Power, produced in partnership with the School of Advanced Air and Space Studies (SAASS), Air University, Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Alabama.
