Three Mods: We fight on the beaches

I have recently put my three Kindle books originally available on Amazon ,

August ’64 Extended

The Summer Of ‘64

Bird’s Eye View

 And s are now combined in this paperback edition available through Amazon,. Three Mods: we will fight on the beaches

The events leading up and including the August Bank Holiday weekend of 1964,

The Second Battle of Hastings as seen through the eyes of three young Mods, whose stories although separate, all describe that eventful weekend, which will change their lives and bring them together.

August ’64 (Steve’s Story) 

In 1964 gangs of Mods and Rockers fought battles on the very British beaches Winston Churchill had once sworn to defend.

Clacton at Easter and Margate at Whitsun had seen the seaside towns invaded by the scooter and motorcycle youngsters.

Now the August Bank Holiday was drawing near and Mods like Steve in Southend on Sea waited to find out which coastal town would be next.

 

The Summer Of ’64 (Stu’s Story)

Clacton during Easter Bank Holiday in 1964 had been the coldest on record for over 100 years and a thoroughly dismal weekend but now as Whitsun approached the weather had improved and the Mods were all waiting to find out which would be the next seaside town to be invaded.

For one of the original Hasting’s Mods, Stu Barnes the forthcoming weekend was to change his life in more ways than one and turn his world upside down.

Bird’s Eye View (Razzle’s Story)

Pamela Haswell was a Southend-on-Sea Mod, known to her friends as ‘Razzle’ for longer than she could remember and with her own scooter she knew that the August Bank Holiday was on the horizon and she would not miss this one having missed Clacton and Margate.

Harbouring a crush for one of her group she hoped this weekend would give her the opportunity to finally get him to notice her.

Thanks to Kai for his original suggestion to put these stories into a paperback format
