This enthralling series of photographic histories, produced in conjunction with "Getty Images", is a multi-faceted vision of Britain over the past century-and-a-half, a heritage shared by all who live within its shores. This volume covers the 1980s, an era dominated by the government of Margaret Thatcher. On 8 December, 1980, the nation awoke to learn that John Lennon was dead - as with the assassination of John Kennedy, everyone remembers how they heard the news. An age of innocence seemed over. In April 1982 Britain went back to war when the Task Force sailed for the South Atlantic to oust invading Argentinians from the Falkland Islands. The conflict was over in just over two months and the victory was reflected in Thatcher's landslide election win of 1983. The following year she mobilised police at home to fight a very different battle that split communities and families: in March the miners went on strike - when they admitted defeat one year later, trade union power was broken. Unemployment soared while the City boomed. The fairytale wedding of Charles and Diana enchanted the world, as did Torvill and Dean's perfect performance to Ravel's Bolero. And Bob Geldof and Live Aid showed that individuals could make a difference.
