Professor Richard Holmes

Very sad news yesterday about the death of Richard Holmes at the premature age of 65.  I was up at Birmingham for the final day of the MA when the news broke via Facebook and there was a visible sense of shock amongst the students.  All of us had his books and had enjoyed his unique style when presenting on television.  I also had the privilege of hearing him speak back in January 2010 at Milton Keynes WFA on “Doctors in the Trenches”.  A great loss to the military history community.  RIP
