YEOVIL LITERARY FESTIVAL EVENT
David Laws - Who Killed Kitchener?
In June 1916, Field Marshal Lord Kitchener set sail from Orkney on a secret mission to bolster the Russian war effort. Just a mile off land HMS Hampshire suffered a huge explosion. Crew and passengers numbered 749; only twelve survived. Kitchener’s body was never found.
Former Cabinet minister and Liberal Democrat MP for Yeovil, David Laws uses newly released files kept secret for almost 100 years. The result is the definitive account of an event that shook the country and which has been shrouded in mystery ever since.
