News: Royalist North West Offensive Thwarted

5th January 1989: The Republican leadership received welcome news when it was reported that the Royalist offensive to seize Liverpool had faltered.

Although some Royalist forces were able to invest the city they became bogged down in fierce street battles as the Republican leadership of the city issued a call to arms to all citizens to resist the royalist troops.

Liverpool mayor Derek Hatton pledged to turn Liverpool "into a new Stalingrad" as militia units including army cadets and trade union chapters fought alongside Republican army units from the Lancashire Regiment against the Royalists.
