Product Description

Product Description

It's a history of the appalling treatment of the mining populations of the Dearne Valley in South Yorkshire. The criminal working conditions and exploitation of men, women and children in the mines by wealthy mine owners and vindictive governments. Then tracing the history through the rise of the unions and the Labour Party. The abuse and slaughter of Valley men in WW1 by Field Marshall Haig and their participation in WW2 Autobiographical details to illustrate what life was like in the Valley. Miners' strikes and political fights between Margaret Thatcher and Arthur Scargill. The demise of the Labour Party and Thatcher's big error of judgement that caused a divided Britain. In short - the book opens up a window into a part of British history and a race of people that many in Britain would prefer to ignore.

The Dearne Valley is and was not as bad as the author makes us believe. The Fitzwilliam collieries looked after their employees, they were the best employers of all the old coal companies, read Black Diamonds.
