Lecture by Professor Andrew Roberts
Monday 17th June 2019
On Monday 17th June Professor Andrew Roberts FRHistS FRSL addressed the Durham Union Society on the subject of his recent book Churchill: Walking With Destiny, an event sponsored by the Society for Army Historical Research.
Professor Roberts described episodes of Winston Churchill’s life ranging from his military career on the North-West Frontier to the Boer War in vivid detail. He then spoke of the qualities which he believed enabled Churchill to lead Britain to victory in the Second World War. This was followed by a lively question and answer session and book signings. The address was very well attended by both members of the SAHR and students of Durham University.
