This encyclopaedia is the definitive work on executions that took place in Britain in the 20th century. The hard facts of each case cover the criminals, the victims, the trials and, of course, the executions themselves. Each case is covered in amazing detail and brought to life by the vivid descriptions of the circumstances, the motives, and sometimes, the remorse. John J. Eddleston has spent years researching and producing detailed, gripping, and authoritative accounts of the executions. This is an essential reference book for true crime fans, criminologists, and those with a passion for historical fact.
