Imperialist War

Title: Imperialist War

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: This is a continuation of the autobiography of a communist organiser during imperialist stage of the second world war. As far as Britain was concerned this started with the signing of the Soviet-German Pact of Non-Agression on the 27th August 1939, and ended with the signing of the British-Soviet Pact of Mutual Assistance on the 12th July 1941. The author emphasises the fact that it was Hitler's apparent decision not to go to war with the Soviet Union that caused Chamberlain to declare war on Germany; and that it was the decision of the Churchill Government to form an alliance with the Soviet Union against Germany, rather than with Germany against the Soviet Union, that changed the character of the war and made it possible for commnunists to support it.

Title: War of Liberation

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: War of Liberation is the third part of a trilogy, of the reflections of a Communist Organiser, and as Ernie describes the main object of the book is to record, for generations far too young to have witnessed or to have understood, the many events of the anti-fascist war that have since been distorted by the media and by unscrupulous historians who have sold themselves to the establishment.

Peace and the cold war - part 1

Title: Peace and the cold war - part 1

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: This is the first of two books dealing with peace and the cold war and covers the Labour Government from 1945 to 1951.

Ernie Trory in his introduction writes that some people have the idea that the ‘cold war’ was started by the Soviet Union and that since the collapse of socialism in that country the ‘cold war’ has come to an end. He maintains that nothing could be further from the truth.

Ernie explains how the ‘cold war’ was, and is, an integral part of the class war that will not cease until the last capitalist surrenders his power and although mainly waged from the right by the conservative hierarchy was supported by right-wing leaders in the Labour Party and some trade unions

Title: Peace and the cold war - part 2

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: This is the second of two books dealing with peace and the cold war and covers the period 1952 to 1960 and in detail the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

The book contains a theoretical examination of the collapse of socialism. Ernie writes that he doesn't accept the probability of a peaceful transistion from capitalims to communism, and so was able to realise, in the course of time, the connection between Krushchev's denunciation of “Stalinism” and the revisionist policies that eventually led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Truth against the world

Title: Truth against the world - The life and times of Thomas Hughes.

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: Thomas Hughes, a little known christian socialist, radical reformer and author of “ Tom Brown’ School Days” is given an appraisal in this biographical endeavour. This is in fact a splendid history of the 19th century, especially of its political and economic events, written from a Marxist viewpoint.

In the clothing trade, men and women worked in small workshops or sweatshops for scandalous wages and excessive hours. Hughes reported the horrific experiences of young girls forced into prostitution to supplement their pay.

Hughes was supported trade unions, specifically the Amalgamated Society of Engineers who suffered a lockout in 1852, he spoke on their platform and wrote regularly for their union journal.

Author: Ernie Trory

Socialism in Germany

Title: Socialism in Germany

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: A short history of the German Democratic Republic (GDR).

This short history was written to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the foundation of the GDR on the 7th October 1949.

The events in the history of the GDR which have suffered most from distortion are those connected with the division of Germany into two countries in 1949; the attempt to provoke a counter-revolution in Berlin in 1953; and the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961. These are what might be termed the sensitive areas of modern European history.

The arguments contained in this booklet will help refute the lies, regarding these three events, that to this day are still being circulated by the British mass media and educational establishments.

Front cover of the booklet ‘Churchill and the bomb’

Title: Churchill and the bomb

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: From 1945 to 1949, the idea of a “preventative war” with the Soviet Union was actively canvassed by Churchill during his many visits to the United States; but the Americans were not able to manufacture and stockpile atomic bombs quickly enough to ensure a decisive strike.

There is little doubt that if the Soviet Union had not rapidly developed a nuclear capability within a few years of the end of the Second World War, it would have certainly been a target for the US planes, equipped with atomic bombs, already stationed in Britain.

This book deals with the origins of the atomic bomb and the diplomacy that sprang from its posession.

Front cover of the booklet ‘How did it happen?’

Title: How did it happen?

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: One of the greatest mistakes that most Communists made in the pre-Gorbachev era was to believe that once socialism had been attained, it was irreversible. The realisation that we took too much for granted and were not critical enough of some of the events that were taking place in the Soviet Union will be a necessary pre-requisite for the deeper study that is imperative before reliable conclusions can be drawn.

This book is a contribution to that task.

Title: Calgary and Seoul - Games of the 24th Olympiad

Author: Ernie Trory

Description: The Olympic Games reflect the economic and political struggles of the period during which they are being held. It is now plain to see that this great festival of sport, involving nearly all the countries of the world, is a microcosm of the contemporary political scene.

This book outlines the battles, particularly in Britain, against apartheid centred around Zola Budd. The book also deals with the political situation in Korea whereby politcal pressure brought about the resignation of their authoritarian president, the defeat of the ruling party and hopes for Korean reunification.
