BOOM THEN BUST
Many readers will be familiar with Jack Rollinís Soccer at War, perhaps the best single-volume account of football in the UK during the two world wars. In a sequel Jack has now turned his attention to the rest of the 1940s. The book has a narrative part, telling the story of 1940s football in the home nations, and a 40 page statistical section. The book is loosely structured around chapters that give details of the careers (and outside interests) of the players of the time, a survey of the achievements of all the League clubs around the country, and a pot pourri chapter of miscellaneous items that lend colour to the events of the time. Football in Scotland, Wales and Ireland is not neglected. The book is illustrated with player photographs, team groups and action shots.
The book is a
mid-sized paperback of 188 pages, printed on 115gsm art paper. The price is £16.
