Render The Chartists Defenceless With Les James

A new twist is revealed in the story of the Newport Rising, which was the last large-scale armed rebellion against authority in Great Britain when, on the 4th November 1839, John Frost led between 1,000 and 5,000 Chartist sympathisers, on a march at the town of Newport, Monmouthshire. Newport–born Hollywood actor Michael Sheen introduces the book, in which historian Les James describes the previously untold story of the voyage of Frost, Zephaniah Williams and William Jones to Van Diemen’s Land in 1840, to start their sentence of transportation for life for treason.
