Book Description

In the last decade of the 20th century, a gang of neo-nazi thugs launched a campaign of terror on Britain's streets. They recruited skinheads, violent racists and the most notorious football hooligans, and took their name from the first and eighth letters of the alphabet, the initials of Adolf Hitler. Their aim was simple: to start a racial war.

In this shocking expose, investigative journalist Nick Lowles tells how Combat 18 fought street battles with their political rivals, muscled their way to control of the lucrative 'Blood and Honour' music scene, forged links with Loyalist paramilitaries in Northern ireland and dreamt of creating a whites-only homeland. They led attacks by England soccer fans, targeted celebrities and inspired an orgy of mayhem across Europe, culminating in car bombings, riots and the murder of police officers. Finally their leaders fell out in a feud that left on man dead and two others serving life jail terms.

WHITE RIOT is a riveting investigation of the extreme far-right and a stark warning of the dangers of a hate-filled ideology.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but biased 24 Jun. 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A fascinating account of the development of the self-styled nazi terror movement, Combat 18. The detail is impressive and the book makes compelling reading. Trouble is, apart from a few punch-ups with the Socialist Workers' Party and some in-fighting with rival national socialists, C-18 doesn't seem actually to have done very much (yet)! Furthermore,Nick Lowles may write well but he's hardly impartial in his treatment of the material.His far-left credentials are well-documented and his contempt for the nationalist right is apparent from the outset; a shame as a less partisan approach to what is a very interesting subject might have proved more illuminating.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The author has written a scincilating account of the most terrifying, hypocrital and violent racist group ever in he history of the UK. He explores it's emergence as the violent arm of the BNP, it's separation from that party and it's attempted expansion across Europe to the divide between it's leaders and fall from socialist power. The book, to me highlights the hypocrosy of these groups with their ever changing beliefs and hatred for each other. Thoroughly enjoyed it and found it difficult to put dowm once I had started reading it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont waste your money 24 July 2012
Format:Paperback
This is hardly unbiased its left wing propaganda from cover to cover. Much of it is made up and from "sources". Lets not forget C18 was set up and run by MI5 to trap idiots. A total waste of money. Fail

2.0 out of 5 stars Stereotypical account of right wing factions 23 Feb. 2004
Format:Paperback
Stereotypical account of the right wing. Accounts of gross violence by neanderthals but very little on their political views.
Easy reading and suitable to basically anyone interested in political pressure groups. Although you have to make your own mind up as to the truth of some of the accounts and personalities.
It is easy to force your own view when writing a book thru semi truths.
