Walking to Greenham: How the Peace Camp Began and the Cold War Ended

Ann Pettitt  All books by Ann Pettitt

£8.99     BUY THIS BOOK

Coming together with a small group of friends,Ann Pettitt started a movement that changed the face of Cold War Britain. Her remarkable memoir tells the real story behind one of the 20th century's most iconic expressions of grass roots political will.

She exposes the surprising roots of the march on Greenham Common, how the Peace Camp left the marchers behind, and how those first marchers took their cause direct to the Kremlin. It is an intriguing and challenging look at what shaped a generation of women's lives and made them strong enough to fight for what they truly believed in.

Ann Pettit's memoir is being published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the arrival of the first marchers at Greenham Common on September 5th 2006.

It is essential reading for those interested in the history of popular protest and women's history.
