Product description


...the miner's strike is still the subject of relentless myth-making and cartoonish propaganda. Harry Paterson's moving and readable account from the sharp end in Nottinghamshire strips away layers of distortion and misrepresentation to tell the real story of the confrontation that shaped Britain today. --Seumas Milne

Paterson's description of the state's determination to crush the NUM and the mining industry makes for a breathtaking read. He hammers home the depth of the betrayal of the Nottinghamshire strike-breakers, while paying full tribute to the striking Nottinghamshire miners and their families who stood by their beliefs, their union and their class. Highly recommended. --Morning Star

About the Author

Harry Paterson lives in Nottinghamshire, and is a freelance writer and music journalist. He was seventeen when the Great Strike started. His father-in-law stayed on strike the whole year and his mother-in-law was active in the women's support network. Other members of his family returned to work during the year. He has spent two years talking to those affected by the strike in Nottinghamshire to tell their stories.
