Episode 3: The Falklands War at 40: Writing the History of the Conflict

How do historians approach the study of conflicts still within living memory? And where do personal and professional histories intertwine?

In this episode of RUSI Journal Radio, hosts Demi, Emma and Ed are joined by Helen Parr.

Helen is a Professor of Modern and Contemporary History at Keele University and author of Our Boys: The Story of a Paratrooper (Allen Lane, 2018), which won RUSI's Duke of Wellington Medal for Military History in 2019.

The episode complements a forthcoming special issue of the RUSI Journal marking the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.
