Gang War

The Inside Story of the Manchester Gangs

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


`The most detailed account of Manchester's gangs ever published.' -- MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

'The definitive account of the crime mobs' feuding.' -- THE WEEKLY NEWS

For twenty years, the most intense and prolonged gang war in British history has raged on the streets of Manchester. Warring factions have left at least forty dead and made headlines across the world. They have blighted the reputation of one of Europe's most dynamic cities and seen the coining of the sinister epithet 'Gunchester'.

GANG WAR traces the roots of the crime mobs, revealing how London gangsters were kept out of the city in the 1960s and how the so-called Quality Street Gang attained national notoriety. It focuses on the rise of the four main 'firms' - the Cheetham Hillbillies, the Doddington, the Gooch and the Salford Lads - and tells how they were eventually joined by lawless younger gangs such as the Longsight Crew and the deadly Pitt Bulls.

By acclaimed investigative journalist Peter Walsh, GANG WAR is a powerful, disturbing account of an extraordinary crime phenomenon. 

Peter Walsh is author or co-author of seven books including Cocky, Guvnors and King of the Gypsies.
