About the lecture

Lieutenant-General Sir Aylmer Hunter-Weston was one of the most controversial British commanders of the First World War. In this lecture Professor Elaine McFarland, the author of a recent, highly acclaimed biography of Hunter-Weston, reassesses perhaps the most contentious aspect of his career: his role in the Gallipoli campaign.

This is the ninth lecture of the University of Wolverhampton/Western Front Association (WFA) First World War Centenary Lecture Series.

Generously supported by a grant from the WFA, the Series is held at the University of Wolverhampton, and open to the public and will run until 2018.
