In his second volume looking at the lives of people who became heroes, villains and victims of the times in which they lived, Stuart Russell records stories of people who history, and time, forgot. This is a collection of extraordinary and at times jaw-dropping stories all based either in Hull or on the happenings of Hull's citizens. It includes the full text of the book "Dark Winter", the story of the Hull fishing disasters of 1968. There are the men who fought the worst that the Arctic weather could throw at them, entombed in their whaling ship for several months and the heroic Hull sailor who lost both feet in a desperate attempt to live when marooned in Newfoundland. Read about the campaigning journalist who exposed Hull's dens of vice, the killer whose lies led another man to the gallows and how a fake gun protected the city of Hull from zeppelin attack."More Heroes, Villains and Victims of Hull and the East Riding" is an enthralling look into how ordinary people led extraordinary lives. It is a well researched, yet entertaining insight into the area's past.
