Talk by SIR LLEWELLYN WOODWARD until recently
Professor of History at Oxford and Princeton
Great battles are not always the decisive events they are taken to be: the changes most important for the future often pass unnoticed by contemporaries. Sir Llewellyn Woodward talks about examples of failure to see the wood for the trees and asks whether in our generation, although we arc more conscious of the fact of change, we are likely to show any more perspicacity than our ancestors in recognising the turning points that occur before our eyes.
