About this Item

Paperback. Foreword by Chris Mullin MP. On March 14, 1991, the Birmingham Six were released from custody after a successful appeal at the Old Bailey in London. The author and the other men had spent over 16yrs in prison as a result of an appalling miscarriage of justice. This is Hugh Callaghan's own personal account of his life, the many strange twists of fate that saw him arrested and charged as an IRA bomber after the Birmingham pub massacres of November 1974 and his survival through the years spent in many different prisons. The author's account of his life is a story of the triumph of the human spirit over impossible odds. He emerges as a thoughtful, humane person, without bitterness but with the ability to see clearly the faults in the system that caused his long nightmare. His family, friends, the many supporters who struggled desperately for justice, the kindness - and inhumanity - of strangers all emerge vividly from this moving story. Illus. 237pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg. Bookseller Inventory # 17559
