Hey Folks, welcome to the Battles of the First World War Podcast. Today we will be conducted an interview with Professor William Philpott, who is Professor of the History of Warfare in the Department of War Studies at King’s College in London. So please join us and listen as a very nervous podcaster screws up his guest’s name and the internet connection goes haywire right during the first question, because of course it would.    Professor Philpott is a widely-published author on the topics of the First World War and Anglo-French relations, and has written the monumental work titled “Bloody Victory: The Sacrifice on the Somme,” which the Financial Times just recently described as having  (quote) “widened the perspective [of the Somme battle], to portray the Somme as a key point at which the balance tilted against Germany in an international war.” (end quote) “Bloody Victory,” which was released as “Three Armies on the Somme” here in the US,  went on to win the 2009 Society for Army Historical Research Templer Medal and the US Western Front Association’s Norman B. Tomlinson Jr Book prize. “Bloody Victory” is the key information resource for this podcast’s current coverage of the Battle of the Somme.   Prof Philpott has also more recently published the book “Attrition: Fighting the First World War,” which has been released in the US under the title “War of Attrition.” He has also published several articles on the First World War, Anglo-French relations, and Nineteenth & Twentieth Century British, French and European Defence Policy and Strategy, among other related topics.   I am very grateful that Prof William Philpott has given us some of his Saturday afternoon in order to discuss the Battle of the Somme, its impact and effects with us here at the Battles of the First World War Podcast. So right after the intro music, listen in for an at-times awkward and somewhat shaky (that would be me) but very informative interview (that would be Prof Philpott).   Any questions, comments or concerns please contact me through the website, www.firstworldwarpodcast.com or the Battles of the First World War Podcast page on FaceBook.
