If you have expressed an interest to present a paper, please can you let me ( have your completed registration by 10 June 2012, including a short abstract and the title of your paper if I don’t already have this.

Speakers currently include Harry Fecitt, Kevin Patience, Peter Charlton, Daniel Steinbach, Tanya Buehrer and Matthew Pesek with topics covering the war on water and in the air, prisoners, German and Portuguese command and strategy and the war in the south.
