BBC online

Articles written for the BBC History website's commemoration of the Somme now up here and here. They haven't necessarily given them the headlines I'd have liked, but then academic nuance doesn't always get people interested. The impression figures for the BBC pages are amazing, so I took this as a real opportunity to get some ideas into the public sphere. I'll be very interested to see what the results are (and I wonder how long it will be before I read a plagiarised essay written from these sites?). Great pictures, anyway…

    This is great, Dan – really important that you’ve got this stuff up on the BBC website, which is looked at by SO MANY people. A neat synthesis, and very readable too.
