Cabinet's Finest Hour by David Owen
Start Date: 4/26/2017Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 4/26/2017End Time: 7:00 PM


Please join us as the National Churchill Library and Center welcomes David Owen (Lord Owen) for a discussion of his new book, Cabinet's Finest Hour: The Hidden Agenda of May 1940. With keen insight, gained in part from having sat at the Cabinet table himself, Lord Owen examines the tense Cabinet meetings that followed Winston Churchill's appointment as Prime Minister, as he and his colleagues debated whether to negotiate with Hitler.

Lord Owen served as British Foreign Secretary from 1977-79 and was a co-founder of the Social Democratic Party.  From 1992-95, he was an EU peace negotiator in the former Yugoslavia, and now sits in the House of Lords.  A neurologist, he is also the author of In Sickness and in Power: Illness in Heads of Government, Military and Business Leaders since 1900
