Carabanchel free pdf This book tells a true story of survival in what was arguably the most sinister prison in Europe: the Carabanchel. Christopher Chance was the last Brit to be shackled and hauled out of that infamous Spanish hellhole before it closed its gates on decades of disgraceful cruelty. He was amongst the last of the inmates transferred to another prison when the authorities turned the key for the final time. Chance's story begins on the day he entered the jail and encountered the innate racism of the prison staff and inmates. Intimidation and constant bullying by Spanish gypsies, gangsters and heroin dealers forced 'Chancer' to become ultra-violent in his quest to live unmolested during his stay, while psychotic prison officers peddled booze and drugs and performed barbaric acts on inmates. In Carabanchel, Chance tells how he forged a band of international brothers from the chaotic human rubble in order to survive. Men from all around the world joined against their common aggressors, the Spanish inmates. Chancer's gang became invincible in this cauldron of hate and fear- their numbers were few but their loyalty and respect for each other, combined with their courage and fighting skills, were second to none. Chance's story highlights the fact that much international crime is concocted in prison and strong business friendships are forged which last for years. This harrowing tale is prison writing in the raw. The action remains unremittingly confined to the brutal, ugly and corrupt environment of the Carabanchel, and rubs the nose of the politically correct brigade in the filth of the real world.
