Join Times+ on Monday, October 29 for an evening with historian, Sir Max Hastings. At this exclusive event, Max will be discussing his new book, Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy 1945-1975.

He has explored a huge range of sources from both sides, from the top decision-makers to the humblest fighters, the epic conflict in which between two and three million people perished between 1945 and 1975.

Max chronicles Vietnam with the benefit of vivid personal memories: first of reporting in 1967–68 from the United States, where he encountered many of the war’s decision-makers including President Lyndon Johnson, then of successive assignments in Indochina for newspapers and BBC TV: he rode a helicopter out of the US Saigon embassy compound during the 1975 final evacuation.

Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy 1945-1975 is published on September 20 by William Collins, with copies available to purchase at a discounted rate within your ticket for the event. Alternatively, full price copies of the book will be available to buy at the event.
