Editorial Review

?As one of the last remaining survivors of the Great Depression and the Second World War, I will not go gently into that good night. I want to tell you what the world looks like through my eyes, so that you can help change it?? In November 2013, 91-year-old Yorkshireman, RAF veteran and ex-carpet salesman Harry Leslie Smith?s Guardian article ? ?This year, I will wear a poppy for the last time? ? was shared over 80,000 times on Facebook and started a huge debate about the state of society. Now he brings his unique perspective to bear on NHS cutbacks, benefits policy, political corruption, food poverty, the cost of education ? and much more. From the deprivation of 1930s Barnsley and the terror of war to the creation of our welfare state, Harry has experienced how a great civilisation can rise from the rubble. But at the end of his life, he fears how easily it is being eroded. Harry?s Last Stand is a lyrical, searing modern invective that shows what the past can teach us, and how the future is ours for the taking. This paperback book has 202 pages and measures: 19.5 x 12.8 x 1.5cm
