I read tonight that Sir John Keegan has passed away at age 78. His obit from the Telegraph.
I had the opportunity to meet him in 1989 in London where he gave a lecture to a group of American Officers visiting the UK and later Normandy. A spell binding lecturer, he was truly a man who enjoyed what he did. His death, as that of his Sandhurst Colleague leaves a void in the company of Military Historians.
May he rest in peace.
