      The struggle. Told from past experiences / historical facts. Realtenseinformative and very well written. Dave Hann was a working-class fighter through and through, big man. We miss you.

      The working class of Britain are often thought of as racist, imperialist, homophobic, small-minded and all that.This book shows this is not the case.

Each victory fills the reader with satisfaction; each setback evokes frustration and regret. A particularly powerful section is the chapter on volu [...]

    5. Mike

      This is a great, concise book covering street action in the 20th and early 21st century to resist fascist organizing in England. It's strength is in the oral history Hann was able to collect, and, as a committed anti-fascist himself, the print material he was able to amass in order to set the record. He tells both of great victories like the Battle of Cable Street and Lewisham, but also discusses how political factionalism or tactical missteps hampered antifascists. Sometimes leftist coalitions [...]
