Many people will have noticed a lack of activity from The Second World War Military Operations Group over the past few months. This has been for a very simple reason; the group has merged with the Second World War Research Group. Both organisations had many of the same members and our objectives mirrored each other in many respects. As such, during 2016, myself and Dr Jonathan Fennell, Co-Director of the Second World War Research Group, have worked out how to bring the two groups together with the decision taking to merge. As such, the new organisation is being taken forward as the Second World War Research Group, which is an international organisation that brings together scholars and research related to any aspect of the Second World War and the surrounding period. The Second World War Research Group aims to promote innovative research on the conflict and its global aspects and acts as a forum for the following:
- Bringing together new perspectives into the conflict across all academic disciplines, and allows the exchange of ideas and the free flow of information across members;
- Publicising recent and current research into the conflict and its global impact;
- Encouraging collaboration in research across the scholarly community and academic disciplines;
- Providing an organisational hub for conferences, seminars and other events relating to the conflict.
