Annual Liberation Literature Lecture 2019

Hosted by Cambridge University Library

The story of the Allies landing on D-Day is a familiar one yet the story of the French people caught up in the typhoon of war is less well known. In this Liberation Literature Lecture, award-winning historian, author and broadcaster, James Holland, will be looking at the destructive toll of war on Normandy and France, why the Allies harnessed air power in the way they did, the consequences for France and the role of the Resistance in paving the way for Allied success.

James Holland

Following the talk, guests are welcome to enjoy a display of items from the Chadwyck-Healey Liberation Literature Collection at a reception at the University Library.

Please note that the talk will take place at The Gillespie Centre at Clare College. The reception is located next door at the University Library.

Free event, all welcome. BOOK HERE
