Britain’s best-selling historian in conversation with our PPC Edward Lucas
His work includes bestselling accounts of the Soviet conquest of Berlin in 1945 and the battle of Stalingrad. His latest book, published on May 26, is Russia – Revolution and Civil War, 1917-1921.
Sir Antony's deep archival research and vivid style bring alive the climactic events in twentieth century history and have brought him numerous prizes and awards.
At a time when Vladimir Putin uses the events of World War Two to justify his “denazification” of Ukraine, and the legacy of the Soviet past becomes ever more visible in modern Russia, Sir Antony’s expertise could not be more topical. Myths and misapprehensions about the past erode and distort our understanding of current events — and have led directly to devastating war in Europe.
Sir Antony will be in discussion with Edward Lucas, who is the author of five books including Deception (on east-west espionage) and the acclaimed New Cold War (2008). Edward was selected as Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate for the Cities of London and Westminster in September 2021.
We are sorry to say that Antony has just emailed to say he has tested positive for COVID-19. Coupled with the tube strike, this means that we cannot go ahead with the event at the National Liberal Club as planned on Monday 6th June, 2022.
However we will host it via Zoom. If you have purchased a ticket, expect the following via email from Constance (Head of Events):
1) Zoom link - Participate in discussion
2) Q&A link - Ask questions :)
If you have not purchased a ticket, but would like to join us, you can watch the live-stream via Twitter.
We look forward to seeing you at least in electronic form on Monday.
