SUNDAY 29 APRIL 9.30AM TO 5PM
Helion and Company are proud to announce the 2018 From Reason to Revolution conference, generously supported by the Society for Army Historical Research. The theme of this inaugural conference is Command and Leadership, and we have a wide range of speakers covering topics, events and personalities from the 1740s through to the Napoleonic Wars.
It is intended that the day will offer a stimulating and informative environment, facilitating research and promoting interest in this often-overlooked era. Many of the speakers are published authors of works in the From Reason to Revolution series, or are working towards some of our future titles. Drinks will be available through the day, a buffet lunch will be provided, and we will be launching new publications on the day with special introductory offers.
