Boots on the Ground: Talk & Book Signing
Tue 13 December 2016, 18:00 – 19:30 GMT
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
Talk by General the Lord Dannatt
A talk to mark the publication of a new book by the Chairman of the Royal Armouries, General the Lord Dannatt - Boots on the Ground: Britain and her Army since 1945
General the Lord Dannatt will bring forty years of military service, including as Chief of the General Staff, to tell the fascinating story of how the British Army has shaped, and been shaped by, world events from the Cold War to the Good Friday Agreement to the EU Referendum. Whether examining the fallout of empire in the insurgencies of Malaya, Kenya and Dhofar, the extraordinary battle for the Falklands, the long-standing conflict in Northern Ireland or Britain's relationship with NATO and experience of fighting with - or for - America, Dannatt examines the complexity of a great British institution.
Tea and coffee will be served from 5.30 pm. The talk will be followed by a book signing and drinks reception.
