Description:
In the autumn of 1936, some 200 men from the Tyneside town of Jarrow marched the 300 miles to London in protest against the destruction of their town and industries. Precisely 80 years on, Stuart Maconie retraces the route of this emblematic English journey, romantically dubbed the Jarrow Crusade, to chart how much Britain has changed since.

Reviews
Another excellent book which is really a walk over history with music,art and politics-far too much of this especially BREXIT.Compares 2016 with 1936 in many aspects with witty asides.Well researched valuable social history.
