This book provides an excellent introduction to the infamous Battle of Cable Street - the confrontation in 1936 between the police, fascists and anti-fascists in London's Jewish neighbourhood.
This book describes the conflict that developed between police and anti-fascists when Sir Oswald Mosley and his Blackshirt army attempted to march through largely Jewish Stepney in East London. 100,000 people crowded the streets, mobilised by left wing groups and jewish organisations, and determined to prevent this deliberate anti-semitic provocation from taking place. Barricades were erected and the area was successfully defended, dspite police doing everythign they could do clear a route for Mosley and the fascists - the march was abandoned and the anti-fascists won a great victory......
