The Classic Account of Life on the Football Terraces

Colin Ward spent much of the 1970s and 1980s on the terraces of football grounds around the country, and following England across the continent. It was a time when passionate support of your team did not mean wearing the team shirt and subscribing to your club's TV station. Instead, it often meant having to defend your part of the stadium against attacks from opposition fans, confrontations with the police, and some decidedly hair-raising encounters. Although, post-Hillsborough, this seems like a vanished era, the world of the football hooligan still has the power to fascinate. No one has captured the atmosphere with the same authenticity as Ward, who reveals the truth behind the easy headlines: the camaraderie, the unexpected friendships between rival groups, the characters who attained near mythical status. Controversial, provocative and above all brilliantly told, Steaming Intakes the reader right to the heart of the action.

Thrust into the position of captain by the necessity of war, Richard Bovbjerg, a young biologist, chronicles a fascinating look at the lives of men aboard a minesweeper, the YMS 353. Bovbjerg guides his crew from Miami, Florida through the South Pacific to the Philippines in the closing year of World War II. From their small wooden hulled boat, Bovbjerg and his crew experience the boredom of endless days at sea punctuated by kamikaze attacks, meetings with a Stone Age tribe in the South Pacific, shore leaves in pre-revolutionary Cuba, the creativity necessary to survive Navy bureaucracy, the terror of tropical typhoons among uncharted reefs, the endless terror of mines, and finally, miraculously, their survival without casualty. An intimate, gritty testimony to be shared by the captains and sailors of the Pacific minesweepers with their children and with all those interested in the daily realities of war, Steaming as Before provides a compelling account of war from life at the base in Miami to the liberation of Palau.

How Britain's Railways Won the War

In the seven decades since the darkest moments of the Second World War it seems every tenebrous corner of the conflict has been laid bare, prodded and examined from every perspective of military and social history. But there is a story that has hitherto been largely overlooked. It is a tale of quiet heroism, a story of ordinary people who fought, with enormous self-sacrifice, not with tanks and guns, but with elbow grease and determination. It is the story of the British railways and, above all, the extraordinary men and women who kept them running from 1939 to 1945. Churchill himself certainly did not underestimate their importance to the wartime story when, in 1943, he praised ‘the unwavering courage and constant resourcefulness of railwaymen of all ranks in contributing so largely towards the final victory.’ And what a story it is. The railway system during the Second World War was the lifeline of the nation, replacing vulnerable road transport and merchant shipping. The railways mobilised troops, transported munitions, evacuated children from cities and kept vital food supplies moving where other forms of transport failed. Railwaymen and women performed outstanding acts of heroism. Nearly 400 workers were killed at their posts and another 2,400 injured in the line of duty. Another 3,500 railwaymen and women died in action. The trains themselves played just as vital a role. The famous Flying Scotsman train delivered its passengers to safety after being pounded by German bombers and strafed with gunfire from the air. There were astonishing feats of engineering restoring tracks within hours and bridges and viaducts within days. Trains transported millions to and from work each day and sheltered them on underground platforms at night, a refuge from the bombs above. Without the railways, there would have been no Dunkirk evacuation and no D-Day. Michael Williams, author of the celebrated book On the Slow Train, has written an important and timely book using original research and over a hundred new personal interviews. This is their story.

This book is about a family leaving the only life they have ever known, (Farming), to learn what the outside world has in store for them. Joseph (Joe), who knows everything there is to know about farming and farm life, is a restless individual who resisted being treated as though he was living in the days of slavery. When one land-owner kicked in the door of his house in the early hours of a cold winter morning before sun-up yelling for everyone to get to work out in the field, that was all he would take. He left, leaving everything and everyone including his beloved family, and hitch-hiked his way up north. He would return, but only to get what belonged to him... His Family .
