Description of Activity

Chair of a public event in which Joe Glenton explores ex-forces life at the heart of a dead empire as he attempts to demystify military culture, rescue the veteran from his captors, and discover if a more optimistic, humanist mode of veteranhood can be recovered from the ruins. Joe will also discuss the militarisation of British education and the UK's recent and current foreign wars.
