Work type: Talk.

T01791307977 (YVONNE08)

General Sir Mike Jackson's illustrious career in the British Army has spanned almost 45 years during which time he has served in theatres from the Arctic to the jungle, but he is perhaps best known for his role in charge of the British troops to end ethnic cleansing in Kosovo, for assembling the British ground component of the coalition that toppled the Taliban and the army dispatched to Iraq, and for re-organising the British army with aplomb. Known for his tough-talking and uncompromising style, he gave more than a hint of his pent-up frustrations when he delivered a blistering attack on the government in a recent Dimbleby lecture, accusing it of failing to meet the most basic needs of the country's soldiers who were risking their lives fighting unpopular wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. His recently published autobiography exhibits all the qualities for which Jackson is admired; his professionalism, his honesty, his directness, his exuberance and his sense of humour. Most of all, it gives a vivid sense of what modern soldiering entails. Join him for an unmissable evening when he will talk at length, and take questions from the audience, about his remarkable life and career.
