Literary Event, Wed 16 Nov 2016


General the Lord Dannatt was Chief of the (army) General Staff from 2006 to 2009. During his long
army service he led troops in Ireland, Bosnia and Kosovo, was Commander in Chief, Land Command and Commander of the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps, planning for deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. As such, he has been involved at senior level in the tumultuous years from the ending of the Cold War to today’s dangerous threats, to national and global security and renewed tensions with Russia. He has won a formidable reputation as an outspoken champion of the army and its troops.

General Dannatt’s new book, Boots on the Ground, tells the story of the army and shifting defence
needs and policies from the end of WW2 and the formation of NATO, to the present day. At this crucial juncture in UK, European and global affairs, General Dannatt provides a highly authoritative view of today’s vital defence needs.
