William Dalrymple is one of our foremost historians. With his wonderful style, a scholarly approach to research, and an eye for detail, he is resoundingly popular and always fascinating.

In Return of a King he focuses on one of the great wars of our history- the British invasion of Afghanistan during the reign of Queen Victoria. Dalrymple tells the story of our greatest military failure and its consequences through vivid characters and a stunning depiction of a world in flux, with implications that stretch to the present day. Return of a King is destined to be the definitive analysis of the First Afghan War.

William is a great speaker and raconteur – don’t miss this event.
