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 all those involved, the circumstances, the motives and, sometimes, the remorse. John Eddleston has spent years researching and producing detailed, gripping and authoritative accounts of the executions. In the course of his accounts he reveals fascinating facts such as why Derek Bentley was given a posthumous. This is an essential reference book for true crime fans, criminologists and those with a passion for historical fact.
