UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR THE NEW DATE!

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.
