Biography of the miner''s son and Labour politician who created the British National Health Service
From the Publisher:
Aneurin Bevan (Nye) (1897-1960) was the man who created the National Health Service, the crowning achievement of the post second world war Labour government. The son of a miner from Monmouthshire, Wales, he became a local miners' trade union leader at only 19, and was elected a Labour MP in 1929. He was one of the few who dared criticise Churchill's leadership during the second world war and to demand government committment to a fairer society. When Labour came to power in 1945 he contributed more than anyone to creating a new society, as the minister responsible for health and for housing in the 1950s he led the Labour Party left, known as the Bevanites.
