An Evening with Antony Beevor

Thursday 21 June, 7.30pm 

Join historian Antony Beevor on Thursday 21st June for a talk on the story of Arnhem.

The British fascination with heroic failure has clouded the story of Arnhem – the battle for the bridges leading to the Lower Rhine in 1944 – in myths. 

Antony Beevor, the distinguished military historian, has reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting. It is a gripping account of an iconic moment in British and European history as well as an analysis of the cost of failure, which included pitiless German reprisals. 

Antony Beevor’s previous bestselling books include Berlin, D-Day, Ardennes 1944 and the multiple prize-winning Stalingrad.
