Based on his recently published biography – ‘Kitchener: Hero and Anti-Hero’ – Dr Faught will examine Kitchener’s 40-year career as soldier, commander, administrator and minister.

This event is part of the National Army Museum’s Evening Series.

This year marks the centenary of the death of Lord Kitchener, one of the most important figures in the history of the British Empire.

The talk will look closely at the events and crises that shaped Kitchener’s professional and personal life, and his outsized impact on Britain from the 1880s until 1916 and beyond.

There will be a book sale and signing follow the talk.

C Brad Faught is Professor of History and Global Studies at Tyndale University and Senior Fellow, Massey College, University of Toronto.
