Tornado: In the Eye of the Storm

You Tube Live Author Q&A
with John Nichol, Iraq War Veteran and
Sunday Times Best-selling Author
8pm – 9pm

When Saddam Hussein ordered the occupation of neighbouring Kuwait in 1990, he set in motion a chain of events which still reverberate around the globe today. 

Tornado is the astonishing story of the RAF’s Tornado force, at the very heart of Operation Desert Storm and the liberation of Kuwait in 1991. Told by former Tornado navigator and local author John Nichol – who was shot down during the conflict, tortured and paraded on TV – it is a story of untold fear and suffering, and astounding courage in the face of hitherto unimaginable adversity. It is the story those who did not return – and of the families who watched and waited as one of the most complex conflicts in recent history unfolded live on television. 

Join us live on our YouTube channel for an evening with John Nichol with a Q & A talk about his new book, Tornado: In the Eye of the Storm.
