Lord David Owen in Conversation with Major Jim Sibbald British-Russian relations over the last two hundred years
Saturday 29 October -11 am
The Beacon, Wantage
Britain’s relationship with Russia has varied dramatically over the last two centuries; battling each other in the Crimean War, allying together against Nazi Germany, then regarding one another with growing suspicion. Lord David Owen – politician, author, and historian – explores the events of the last 200 years, the characters involved and the results of the failures and successes in diplomacy.
Major Sibbald has an extensive military career including active duty, peacekeeping and liaison – perfect for this event.
