About this Event

"The Human Cost of the Vietnam War"

Max Hastings

Award-winning journalist, foreign correspondent and expert on defense matters

By the end of the war in May 1975, 58,220 US soldiers had died together with eighteen Russians, fourteen North Koreans, 771 Chinese - and more than two million Vietnamese, around 40 for every American corpse, together with numberless more Cambodian and Lao people.

These numbers far exceed the human cost of the 21st century’s wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria combined. Vietnam also made a cultural impact upon its times greater than any modern strife.

Mr. Hastings will explore the Vietnam War from the human perspective.

We look forward to the stimulating conversations around the presentation afterward during the reception. This year Waterstones book shop will be a partner in these events to allow you to purchase books by the authors that will be visiting us.
