From the Suez Canal to Megiddo: The British Imperial Army's War in Sinai and Palestine, 1916-18

National Army Museum free lunchtime lectures.

The First World War is principally seen as a European conflict but there was also a global war in the Middle East involving a British Army made up of robust, multi-ethnic troops from Australia, New Zealand and India. Battles were fought across Sinai and Palestine culminating in the decisive battle of Megiddo. High levels of disease and combat casualties took their toll but the imperial army played a fundamental role in securing British victory.
Dr Kitchen is an academic and writer and is currently Senior Lecturer in War Studies at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
