Why soldiers fight: from the First World War to Afghanistan

Wed 19 November 2014

7pm – 9.30pm

The British soldier serving in 2014, with their state of the art equipment, looks very different to the volunteer ‘Tommy’ of the First World War.  But are today’s soldiers so different from those who served in 1914? 

Join Nick Childs, World Affairs Correspondent for BBC News, as he chairs a discussion between  IWM Curator Laura Clouting, Professor Anthony King and serving soldier Lieutenant Colonel Alex Turner to explore ‘why soldiers fight.’
