Our Next Event
Antony Beevor Talks About and Signs his New Book, Ardennes 1944 Hitlerís Last Gamble
Thursday 28 May 2015
“Revealing, profound and thoroughly unputdownable…An extraordinary achievement which transcends its genre.” DAILY TELGRAPH, on Stalingrad
“Makes us fear the chaos and the fear as if every drop of blood was our own. Compellingly readable, deeply researched and beautifully written.” SPECTATOR, on Berlin
On 16th December 1944, Hitler launched his ‘last gamble’ in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes on the Belgium/German border. Although Hitler’s generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. The Ardennes offensive, with more than a million men involved, became the greatest battle of the war in western Europe. In January 1945, when the Red Army began its onslaught towards Berlin, the once-feared German war machine was revealed to be broken beyond repair. The Ardennes was the battle which finally broke the Wehrmacht.
Antony Beevor served as a regular officer in the 11th Hussars in Germany. He is the author of Crete - The Battle and the Resistance, which won a Runciman Prize; Paris After the Liberation, 1944-1949 (written with his wife Artemis Cooper); Stalingrad, which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History and the Hawthornden Prize for Literature; Berlin - The Downfall, which received the first Longman-History Today Trustees' Award; The Battle for Spain; The Mystery of Olga Chekhova and, D-Day, which received the RUSI Westminster Medal. His most recent book The Second World War was a no:1 bestseller in Britain and four other countries, and has already been translated into 23 different languages around the world.
Tickets are £10, which can be deducted from the cost of the hardback book (£25) if purchased on the evening. The Spirella Ballroom is located in Letchworth (SG6 4ET).
