5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent short story, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just downloaded this tonight. I really enjoyed it. I have always been interested in the Miners' Strike and feel that this was a really excellent short story that sums up the feeling of many towards Thatcher.

While the press seem to have tried to rewrite history over her policies and Premiership, there are many (still living with the consequences of her policies) that have not.

I particularly enjoyed the local accent (fell about laughing at the post above. Cockney!! bless).

5.0 out of 5 stars The 1984/85 Miners Strike, 6 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is one mans view of the 1984/85 miners strike. Living in Nottinghamshire, where many went back to work, John Lowe talks about his own and the wider miners struggle against Thatchers Government.

Moving, depressing and thought provoking, many parallels can be drawn towards the political movements today and the experiences of the miners in the 80s.

An eyeopener to the experience and determination of a few good men fighting for the greater good.
