'Our Boys' book cover

Description

In her book Our Boys: The Story of a Falklands Paratrooper, Parr draws on the experiences of the people who were there and the personal story of her uncle David, who was killed during the conflict.

She highlights the prominent role of the Parachute Regiment – fighting key battles and winning both the war’s Victoria Crosses – and shows how it transformed their public image.

Join Parr as she brings the conflict to life and examines how it started to shift Britain’s relationship with its soldiers, and our attitudes to war.

This event is followed by a book signing with the author.

This event is supported by RUSI – Royal United Services Institute.
