Julie Peakman: Hitler’s Island War: The Men who fought for Leros

Non-Fiction

Literary Lunch

Dr. Julie Peakman’s latest work is a new departure for her, a book about WWII on Leros, the Greek island she had loved since she was a teenager.   

Interviewing witnesses over 15 years and collecting important but little known information on the Battle of Leros, she has written a new kind of war book that puts people, not strategy at the centre of the story.

Julie is a frequent contributor to academic journals, national newspapers and popular magazines and has worked on television documentaries for the BBC, Channel 4 and the Biography Channel. She is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and Honorary Fellow at Birkbeck College, University of London and lives in London and on the island of Leros.
