About the event

Historian Jonathan Walker discusses the Aden emergency. On the 50th anniversary of the British withdrawal from Aden, author and historian Jonathan Walker looks at the controversial military campaign and its legacy. In the 1960s, Britain’s only Arab colony became a battleground of the Cold War as British forces struggled to defend one of the last bastions of the Empire. Many regiments rose to the challenge but Aden was also the graveyard of military and political careers.
