The University of Birmingham has for a long time led the field in the study of Britain and the Great War. Its Centre for War Studies brings together scholars who have an interest in the study of war and conflict in all of its guises, including leading British and international First World War historians with a broad range of expertise on all aspects of this multi-faceted, fascinating and terrible conflict. It also runs the only MA programme dedicated to First World War Studies in the U.K. For further information on the Centre, please see or e-mail Dr Jonathan Boff on
