The origins of wearing a poppy on Remembrance Day, in the hand of Haig himself. Examples like this remind us of the importance of looking beyond the two-dimensional stereotype of ‘Butcher Haig’.

Wow. Brilliant, provocative final keynote from Jay Winter on the ‘War & Revolution’—The Second Great War, 1917-23. The immense civil bloodletting, ethnic cleansing, starvation in Europe, from Ireland to Russia

A really good presentation, Carole, and thank you for it. A wonderful contrast to the global scope of Peter Frankopan’s keynote immediately before. From history with a telescope to history with a microscope. Thanks again.

Outstanding paper by Prof Winter to conclude a superb conference . A ‘second great war’ 1917-1923/24, centred in eastern Europe, marked by civil chaos and brutality, and unleashed by the war in the west. Well done and thanks for all your work organising.

Excellent paper by Mark Connelly on the post-war transformation of Ypres into ‘an outpost of the British empire’. Interesting discussion re. pilgrimage v tourism (and hierarchy of bereavement).
