More About the Event

On October 17 three of Britain’s most distinguished and bestselling historians – Peter FrankopanMax Hastings, and Margaret MacMillan – come to the Intelligence Squared stage in London to share their insights into the conflict.

In conversation with BBC news presenter Jonny Dymond, they will examine how politicians and commentators have been using and abusing history to justify their positions on the conflict.

  • How has President Putin been invoking the past to rally support among the Russian people for his actions?
  • Is Putin a 21st-century Hitler who should be defeated at all costs?
  • Are the parallels that have been drawn between those pushing for a negotiated settlement between Russia and
  • Ukraine and Neville Chamberlain at all helpful?
