'The Miners' Strike which began in the coalfields in 1984 is a landmark in British labour history. The story of the strike is told here through the experiences of active miners and their. wives and supporters in one Yorkshire village. It is told directly, in their own words, and provides a first hand account of how the strike began and why it continued. It documents clearly the hopes, the fun and commitment which went into this epic struggle, as well as the pain and the bitterness of its ending. It is a powerful human account, both a good read and a valuable historical document.'
