Last English Revolutionary by Hugh Purcell

Book Description

1940 was Wintringham's finest hour. Inspired by his Spanish experience of a popular front (an alliance of all left-wing parties) he campaigned for a Home Guard and originated an extraordinary guerrilla training school at Osterley Park. Known as the Red Revolutionary, Wintringham was a household name through his campaigning journalism, his broadcasts on the Brains Trust and his popular books. Like his friend George Orwell he was a revolutionary patriot who believed that a social revolution was necessary to defeat the Nazis; his slogan was 'a people's war for a people's peace'.

Books By Author Hugh Purcell

Last English Revolutionary by Hugh Purcell Last English Revolutionary, Paperback (April 2012)

Drawing on his political and fighting experience in the Spanish Civil War, Tom Wintringham wrote the best-seller "New Ways of War": 'a do-it-yourself guide to killing people' but also a highly subversive call for a socialist revolution. He called for 'a People's war' and the phrase stuck. This book tells his story.

After the Raj by Hugh Purcell After the Raj, Paperback (January 2011)

This is the story of the very last of the stayers-on. Through their eyes we see how the legacy has withered over the years but, with their help, also how it has evolved in a new millennium.

Maharajah of Bikaner by Hugh Purcell Maharajah of Bikaner, Hardback (September 2010)

The story of the Indian soldiery in the Great War needs a new telling and one important chapter of it will be about the Maharajah of Bikaner: Dashing, autocratic and a formidable public speaker, commander his own camel corps, he fought on the Western Front and in Egypt, became the first Indian general in the British Indian army.
