Last Sunday I interviewed military historian and former Daily Telegraph Middle-East correspondent, Patrick Bishop, on his latest book, The Reckoning. Admirable author, so well and scrupulously researched, yet with the gift to tell a compelling and thought-provoking story. I am expecting the festival organisers to make available shortly a recording of the event attended by 100 people.
Patrick Bishop: The Reckoning
Patrick Bishop, Chair: Lucian Hudson
Sunday, 1 March 2015
As leader of the infamous Stern Gang, Avraham Stern fomented Jewish rebellion in Palestine against British rule. He was shot dead by a British officer on a cold winter’s day in Tel Aviv in 1942, his death hastening the end of the British Mandate. Bestselling author Patrick Bishop talks to strategy and communications expert, Lucian Hudson, about the man whose life and death held such momentous historical consequences. Patrick Bishop, formerly Middle East correspondent for The Daily Telegraph, was a foreign correspondent for over 20 years. He is now one of Britain’s most well-regarded military historians and the author of several acclaimed books.
Lucian Hudson is Director of Communications at The Open University and was a senior executive and television journalist for both the BBC and ITV. He has chaired several non-profit organisations, including Liberal Judaism.
