Liverpool and the Battle of the Atlantic

It is July and we have reached our last Zoom meeting this summer. In August we will be taking a break but our 2021 – 2022 programme starting on Tuesday, 14 September is already available for you to see. Just use the Programme link at the top of this website.

At our July meeting we will have David Hearn talking about Liverpool and its strategic importance in the Battle of the Atlantic during World War II.

The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest military campaign of the Second World War.  It began in September 1939 and lasted for almost 6 years until the Germans surrendered on 8 May 1945, Victory in Europe Day.

During that time, around 5,000 British and Allied ships were sunk with some 65,000 Allied and merchant seamen being lost and in many ways Liverpool was crucial to that battle.

The talk is to be held on Tuesday, 13 July at 7.30 pm via Zoom.
