Event Details


Join General Lord Richard Dannatt, former senior Army Officer and Chief of the General Staff, and Robert Lyman, Britain’s top military historian, as they bring to life their compelling new history of the decline of an army from the triumph of victory in 1918 to defeat in 1940. With the British Army soon to be cut to its smallest size, it’s both a fascinating story and a cautionary tale for modern Britain

Chaired by Allan Mallinson, former soldier, writer and author of The Making of the British Army.

‘Succinct, convincing and, with the largest war since 1945 raging in Europe today, timely. This is an excellent book.’ (Andrew Roberts)
