Life on the front line with Kim Hughes
‘Painting the Sand’ is a book about science, bombs, and what happens to the human psyche when every day you go to work might be your last.
Kim Hughes is the most highly decorated bomb disposal operator serving in the British Army. He was awarded the George Cross in 2009 following a gruelling six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan during which he defused 119 improvised explosive devices, survived numerous Taliban ambushes and endured a close encounter with the Secretary of State for Defence.
This isn’t just another Afghanistan memoir but also a book about science, bombs, and what happens to the human psyche when every day you go to work might be your last. This is one of the best memoirs that will come out of a ten-year struggle and you can meet the man himself!
Join Chorleywood Bookshop and Kim Hughes on Monday 4th June, 7.30pm at The Junction, WD3 5SG for an evening like no other… For one night only we will see what life was truly like for troops on the ground and experience a first-hand account from a soldier who faced danger with every step he took on enemy terrain.
Ticket £10.00 to include a glass of wine or a beer. Book ‘Painting the Sand’ will be £8.99 on the night.
