Festival talks by John Buckley

117. MONTY’S MEN – D-Day Sunday Talk

Following Britain’s military commanders and troops across the battlefields of Europe, from D-Day to VE-Day, from the Normandy beaches to Arnhem and the Rhine, and, ultimately, to the Baltic, John Buckley will offer a radical reappraisal of Great Britain’s fighting forces during World War Two, challenging the common belief that the British Army was no match for the vaunted Nazi war machine.

Chalke Valley History Festival is delighted to support WALKING WITH THE WOUNDED.  The charity supports those who have served in the Armed Forces and their families, empowering them to regain their independence, thrive and contribute in our communities. https://walkingwiththewounded.org.uk
