Description

Published date: 8 September 2011

The historian A.J.P Taylor, considering the events of 1914, once argued: ‘The First World War had begun – imposed on the statesmen of Europe by railway timetables. It was an unexpected climax to the railway age.’ This talk will look at how the railways of Britain and Europe prepared for war in 1914 and how central the railways were to troop mobilisation.
