Evening Lecture with Ian Garden
Monday 8th October 2018, 7.00pm
Our evening lecture on Monday 8th October will be based upon Telling Lies during War-time which is based on Mr Garden’s research for his latest book, ‘Battling with the Truth’. This illustrated talk provides an overview of the many ‘mistruths’ told by both sides about key events during WW2 – including The Dambusters’ Raid, the Artic Convoys and Stalingrad – and concludes with a screening of comparative newsreel by both sides about the infamous Allied raid on Dieppe in 1942. It shows the extent to which both sides tried to make propaganda out of the same event and gives members of the audience a chance to try to judge for themselves who was being more honest before the truth is revealed.
