Product description

The General Strike of 1926 was the most dramatic single event in British politics between the wars. As such, it has entered the nation's folk-lore, like Peterloo and Tolpuddle. Although it lasted only 9 days, it seemed to have brought Britain to the brink of revolution. There was nothing cosy about the Nine Days. They were born of the bitterness and frustration felt by millions of working people when pay was low and unemployment high. Like a newreel, this dramatic book tells the story in pictures of what happened during those momentous days of confrontation, compromise, and eventual defeat. It was a struggle whose scars are still visible today. Here for the reader - and the viewer - is portrayed, in vivid sequence, exactly what took place as the camera recorded it.
