The author of a book based on WW2’s battle of Dunkirk is visiting Halifax’s Victoria Theatre to discuss the historical significance of the event.

Sinclair McKay will discuss the research and interviews with veterans used to compile The Moments of Dunkirk.

Mr McKay said: “with Dunkirk and the Second World War, there is an added urgency; there’s a sense of history being just at the edge of living memory. The Dunkirk veterans I interviewed were all in their mid-90s and there is that sense that you want to capture every single word, every last story, every close-up detail.”

The author of The Secret Life of Bletchley Park will appear at Victoria Theatre on September 28. For tickets, call box office on 01422 351158.
