This is literally a no-punches pulled account of militant group Anti Fascist Action’s fight against fascism in Britain by a grassroots anarchist member of AFA. Highly recommended.
It is important, not because he makes any pretence at being a leading light but because the many small (or not so small) contributions such people make are key to the success that AFA achieved.
Written with honesty and a sense of humour, the tale of challenging the fascists for control of the streets – and winning – never descends to political cliché or reads like a pools forecast.

First posted online by libcom.org 2007. We have slightly edited the text for formatting, and we have edited some chapter titles to include more information about what the chapters were about, with small introductory paragraphs in bold. This is for the benefit of readers who may just come across the chapters as standalone articles. In the original text all chapter titles are given as locations and dates. e.g. "Marble Arch Blood and Honour gig, London, 1989" was Marble Arch, London, 1989."
