War Stories: Gripping tales of courage, cunning and compassion

Sat 18 Nov / Quarterhouse

Spanning four centuries and four continents, Peter Snow and Ann MacMillan give us a lively, moving and uniquely intimate account of ordinary men and women who rose to the challenge of war with acts of great heroism and humanity.

Peter Snow is a highly respected journalist, author and broadcaster. He presented BBC's Newsnight from 1980 to 1997 and covered military matters on and off the world's battlefields for forty years. He presented the BBC documentaries Battlefield Britain and The World's Greatest Twentieth Century Battlefields with his son Dan. He is the author of several books including To War with Wellington and When Britain Burned the White House.

Ann MacMillan - Peter Snow’s wife and the great granddaughter of David Lloyd George - worked for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
