Professor Richard Holmes

I was very sad to hear of the death yesterday of Professor Richard Holmes, the great military historian and broadcaster.  In the last month I borrowed two of his books from our library - Tommy and Shots from the Front.  I enjoyed Tommy so much I bought my own copy and have referred to it several times in researching for this blog.  My thoughts are with his family and friends.

There is a tribute to Professor Holmes on the Western Front Association's website here.
