Peter Snow and Ann MacMillan: War Stories: Gripping Tales of Courage, Cunning and Compassion

Gala Theatre

09.10.17

Part of the Durham Book Festival

6.15pm - 7.15pm

 

Durham Book Festival is delighted to welcome back Peter Snow, a highly respected journalist, author and broadcaster. He was ITN’s Diplomatic and Defence Correspondent and presented BBC’s Newsnight. His wife Ann MacMillan is a fellow broadcaster and journalist who was latterly the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Managing Editor in London.

Together they have written War Stories, a fascinating account of thirty-four ordinary men and women who were swept up in the turbulence of war – from Crimea and the World Wars to Syria. Spanning four centuries and four continents, many of these stories of great bravery and suffering, remain untold – until now.

Introduced by Dr Keith Bartlett, Durham University
