Birmingham City's Zulu Warriors occupy a unique place in the annals of hooliganism: Britain's biggest multi-racial football firm. Once,the St Andrew's terraces were the preserve of skinheads and bootboys,many of them casually racist.But in the early Eighties,a shadowy group called the Apex united black and white, against a backdrop of 2-Tone ska and the emerging casual fashion.Soon Apex gave way to the Zulus,the name taken from a chant first heard at Manchester City in 1982.As the gang expanded to become hundreds strong,it became both feared for its ferocity and admired and emulated for its style.Journalist Caroline Gall has been granted unprecedented access to the gang and spent a year interviewing Zulu leaders and their associates.She examines their rivalry with neighbours Aston Villa and how clashes with other firms saw them become one of the "top five" mobs in the country.She uncovers their role in some of the worst football-related riots of modern times,reveals how the gang diverged into two separate firms of hooligans and criminals,and looks in-depth at Operation Red Card,the successful West Midlands Police probe into their activities. Gall also traces their involvement in the rave scene,the emergence of offshoot gangs such as the Brew Crew and the Junior Business Boys,and chronicles some of their major confrontations of recent years against the likes of Tottenham,Stoke City,Millwall,Cardiff, Portsmouth,Liverpool and Wolves,culminating in the infamous Battle of Rocky Lane against Villa in 2002.As a journalist for BBC Online,and writing for numerous national newspapers and magazines,this is her first book. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!
