On Thursday 21st June, the Army & Navy Club plays host to an evening in memory of those who fought for Britain and her Allies in Burma during World War Two.
The guest speaker for the evening will be WW2 historian, writer, and broadcaster, James Holland. James wrote Burma 44: The Battle that turned Britain’s war in the East, alongside a number of best-selling histories including Battle of Britain, Dam Busters, and most recently, The War in the West. He has also written nine works of historical fiction, including the Jack Tanner novels.
