Participants were most intrigued by John's exploration of all the 'what if's' he saw emanating out of the Great War and his strong suggestion that, had things gone just a little differently, there would not have been 50 million to over 80 million dead in World War II.
During the session Bev, aware of timetabling deadlines and concerned, along with other group members, that this very well received course continue, kept gentle (?) pressure on John to continue teaching 'Over There' in 2018. We succeeded - 'we're in' (at least very firmly pencilled in) John's diary for 2018, with sessions adjusted to fit in with John's travel commitments where necessary.
John mentioned that he has a wonderful collection/reference list to DVD, You Tube, and other source material which he envisages drawing upon throughout next year's course.
So, if you are interested in finding out more about the First World War and the 100th anniversary milestones next year, come along to 'Over There', third Friday, 1.30 - 3.30 in the U3A Meeting Room.
