Read full description of the books:
Warning. This is a thick tome weighing in at some 1,200 pages.
Having read the memoirs of every Prime Minister since 1900, I decided to go off on a tangent and examine some of the big beasts of British politics since 1970. Enoch's career ended suddenly in 1968 when his 'Rivers of Blood' speech cut a fissure across the race relations landscape. He was sacked from the shadow-cabinet by a cowardly Heath and relegated to the realms of an outsider and cross bencher, despite overwhelming support from the British people at the time. Support which possibly brought the Tories back to power in 1970.
Sadly Enoch became the unwitting poster-boy for neo-nazis and skin heads. His name is now entirely discredited in the annals of British political history. I'm not sure many of his odious BNP supporters know that he spoke 13 languages including Urdu.
Enoch's life encompassed an extraordinary list of achievements. Awarded a double-starred first at Cambridge, the only WW11 soldier to be promoted from the ranks to Brigadier - Enoch had the kind of intelligence that transcends politics. It's a pity he wasn't understood.
This is a great book which takes the reader on a truly grand tour.
