Comrades Come Rally!


‘Comrades Come Rally’ is a history of the Communist Party in Manchester revealed through the lives of rank and file members, through the struggle against mass unemployment, the fight against fascism in Britain and in Spain, to the election of the 1945 Labour government. Chapter by chapter contemporaries recount historical events, their accounts drawn from interviews, letters, published and unpublished memoirs and other primary sources. It is the story of individuals, remarkable men and women, who changed the fortunes of the labour movement between the Hunger Marches and the Atlee Government in the city of Manchester – a source of radical politics from the early 1800s onwards. Through the experiences of Ewan MacColl, Sam Wild, Hugh Scanlon and others, this book presents a lived history from the shop floor in Trafford Park to the front line in Catalonia.
