Fought in April 1951 in Korea, this was the bloodiest engagement endured by the British Army since the Second World War. For three days the 29th British Independent Infantry Brigade Group thwarted massed Chinese attacks.
Dr Chris Parry will outline the geo-strategic background to the Korean War, the reasons for British involvement, and the scale of the British military contribution. He will also highlight features that apply to today’s strategic environment.
This conversation between Colonel (retd) Rex Cain OBE and Lieutenant General Doug Chalmers DSO OBE will allow the audience to get a feel for what it was like to be a young subaltern joining his unit in the middle of the Korean War.
