At this special event on the 75th anniversary of “VE Day”, the end of the Second World War in Europe, Peter Monteath and Megan Spencer will share their thoughts in a conversation about war and remembrance, with an emphasis on the campaign in Crete; the most modern and the most ancient of wars.
Peter, Professor of History at Flinders University, is the author of newly published war history, Battle on 42nd Street: War in Crete and the Anzacs’ bloody last stand.
Megan is, among other things, a broadcaster, critic, writer and creator of the recent six-part, cinematic podcast series, From a Whisper to a Bang!, commissioned by the Australian War Memorial.
Battle on 42nd Street will be available to purchase at the event with Peter present for a book signing afterwards.
This event is part of South Australia’s History Festival 2020.
