After the First World War, The Real Peaky Blinders book tells of the rise to power of Thomas Shelby and his criminal gang. Yet the real stories behind these fictional characters are just as dramatic, bloody and compelling as the TV series.
Thomas Shelby’s arch enemy Billy Kimber was in real life a Brummie from Summer Lane. He was a feared fighter with an astute mind and magnetic personality. This earned him the leadership of the Birmingham Gang that dominated the highly profitable protection rackets. Wheter at the racecourses of England or beyond, this was a feared gang throughout.
The members of this gang had once been ‘sloggers’ or ‘peaky blinders’. Their rise to supremacy was attributable to their viciousness and to Kimber’s shrewd alliances with other gangs. But they soon incurred the envy of the Sabini Gang of London. They fought violently to oust Kimber and his men and take over their rackets. The Birmingham Gang battled back fiercely in the infamous and blood-stained racecourse wars of the 1920s. This Birmingham Gang led by Billy Kimber were the Real Peaky Blinders and this is their story.
