National Army Museum - Upcoming Celebrity Speakers

We've just had an email in from the NAM with their line up for May which looks pretty interesting:

The Manner of Men: 9 PARA's Heroic D-Day Mission
Colonel Stuart Tootal
9 May 2013, 7.00pm
Six hours before dawn on 6 June 1944, and the official beginning of D-Day, 9 PARA dropped into the darkness behind the German defences. Their mission: to destroy the heavily fortified German gun emplacement at Merville.

In this talk, Colonel Stuart Tootal will draw on the first-hand accounts of surviving veterans from both sides, detailed research and his own experiences of facing the odds of battle. He will tell the incredible story of a desperate band of brothers fighting their way to victory in the face of impossible odds.

Bravo Two Zero: 20 Years On
Andy McNab
23 May 2013, 7.00pm
Twenty years after its first publication, 'Bravo Two Zero' remains the biggest selling military history book of all time.

To mark this anniversary, Andy McNab will talk about that ill-fated mission that went deep into the Iraqi desert during the First Gulf War (1990-91), what he discovered when he returned to the area a decade on, and what has happened to the rest of the patrol since.
