Talk: Choosing War? Choice And Tragedy In The Origins And Escalations Of Vietnam’s Wars
  • Theatre 2, University of Plymouth

Save event

Professor of History at Exeter University and Director of the Centre for the Study of War, State and Society, Martin Thomas has written a number of books about the French colonial empire.

He is especially interested in why the end of European empire was bitterly – and violently – contested in some places but less so in others. He argues that 20th century war in Indochina showed the futility of resisting decolonisation, and could be seen as being a hugely costly and ultimately pointless conflict.

Date: Tuesday 6 March
