This book provides an excellent account of the Miners Strike in the Nottinghamshire area, and is written by the current Notts area NUM leader, who was himself actively involved in the strike.
From the rear side cover: 26 years on from the miners strike of 1984-85 the Iron Maiden Thatcher, her Tory cronies and McGregor's draconian hierachy at the National Coal Board are all long gone - however there still remains a National Union of Mineworkers Nottinghamshire Area
The members of the NUM in Nottinghamshire withstood the most vicious treatment dealt out by the unscrupilous Coal managers after the strike. It is because of the resolve of these members and the ones that followed that the union in Notts is still active today, representing the miners who have remained loyal to the NUM
