Event Details

The Battle of the Imjin River in 1951 was a major turning point of the Korean War, when the communist advance from the North was met in the bloodiest battle endured by the British Army since WW2. 700 men of the Gloucester Regiment faced more than 10,000 Chinese. Marking its 70th anniversary, leading historian Dan Snow explores the history of the battle and is joined by veterans of the battle Brian Hamblett and Tommy Clough, who were Chinese prisoners of war for more than two years. They discuss their battle experiences, Tommy’s bid to escape the prison camp and the role of British soldiers in the Korean War.
