Postcards from the Western Front


What happened when people wanted to visit the battlefields of the First World War?

This month we’re rejoined by Prof Mark Connelly (University of Kent) to discuss his new book Postcards from the Western Front: Pilgrims, Veterans, and Tourists after the Great War. Along the way we discuss ownership of the battlefields, issues of infrastructure for tourists, and what happens if your mum visits you in the trenches.
