About this Event

Percy Campbell. Albert Phipps. Lionel Edens.

Three men living in a corner of North Oxford: divided by class, united by war.

Belgium has collapsed. War is arriving on their doorsteps. The order of previous decades is coming down

During this talk Liz will discuss her research into the local men featured on Oxford’s WW1 memorial and how this led her to write her latest book – At the Going Down of the Sun. Discover the lives of three North Oxford men during the turbulent wartime period.
