An excellent book that tells of the ruthlessness of Sir Donald Bradman and his team. Bradman even enlisted the help of the England selectors to gain his series win. Malcolm Knox has done his research well and takes us back to a more keenly contested series of test matches than more recent series. England were easily beaten in the 1948 series and the author deserves praise for taking us back to a time of rationing and recovery from the second world war and notes the differences of the fitness of the two teams that did not help the English team. Bradman's relations with his teammates are examined and his relationship with Keith Miller is fascinating. A well-written book that I enjoyed reading.
