78. CABINET’S FINEST HOUR: THE HIDDEN AGENDA OF MAY 1940

THE CHURCHILL LECTURE
Generously sponsored by

Drawing on documents and minutes of the British War Cabinet meetings of May 1940, former Foreign Secretary David Owen will reveal the passionate debates within the Cabinet that prevented Britain from seeking a negotiated peace with Nazi Germany. He will explain how the post-war denial of the existence of these debates has had far-reaching consequences for Britain’s foreign and defence policy to this day.
