Coming together with a small group of friends, Ann Pettitt started a movement that changed the face of Cold War Britain. Her remarkable memoir tells the real story behind one of the 20th century's most iconic expressions of grass roots political will. She exposes the surprising roots of the march on Greenham Common, how the Peace Camp left the marchers behind, and how those first marchers took their cause direct to the Kremlin. It is an intriguing and challenging look at what shaped a generation of women's lives and made them strong enough to fight for what they truly believed in.

"Poignant and insightful."  —The Spokesman Ann Pettitt taught French before running a successful small business making ceramic tiles. She has written for a number of national newspapers, feminist publications, and other magazines on the subjects of the Greenham Peace Camp, feminism, sustainable living, Welsh politics, and walking and public footpaths.

Review Text

  • By conjunction on November 10, 2016

    A wonderful account of how, as Ann keeps saying, ordinary people can have a real impact on the world.It is interesting in particular because it shows how political movements (like religions) which start with the best intentions get reified and sidetracked by their own rules. Won't Get Fooled Again kind of thing. People get hypnotised by their own propoganda.Ann doesn't seem to have been like this, and her determination drove her to Moscow to confront Russian authorities about world peace once the Greenham Peace Camp was established.More than a bonus is that this book is beautifully written with wit and intelligence.
