  • This event has passed.

Peter Snow and Ann MacMillan

Saturday 13th October 15:00 - 16:00 | Northwood House

War Stories is a fascinating account of ordinary men and women swept up in the turbulence of war. These are their stories–many untold until now–of 28 individuals and three couples who have pushed the boundaries of love, bravery, suffering and terror beyond the imaginable. The stories span nearly three centuries from the terrifying odyssey of John Bulkeley of HMS Wager along the remote coast of Chile in 1741 to the heart-stopping escape from Syria of Ahmed Terkawi 2016.

All stories are based on primary resource material. There are first-hand accounts too. War Stories from tales of spies, escapes and innovation to uplifting acts of humanity, celebrating men and women whose wartime experiences are beyond compare.
