About this Event

Historian Andrew Lownie introduces his new joint biography of the lives of Earl Mountbatten of Burma and his wife Edwina. As President and Grand President of ROSL from 1942 to 1979, Over-Seas House is a fitting location to discover more about the charismatic character of Mountbatten. With lives touching the history of the 20th century, it is a rich story whose characters include: all the key figures of the Second World War from Churchill, Macmillan, Eden, Montgomery to Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Stilwell and Chiang Kai-Shek; The Royal Family; and stars of stage and screen Charlie Chaplin, Agatha Christie, Noel Coward, Joan Crawford, and Cary Grant.
