5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable, 9 Jan 2008
I'm not much given to superlatives but this has to be the best Great War Unit history I've ever read, and I've read hundreds!! The immense wealth of information reflects clearly the huge research undertaken by the author. But it's not just that this is a war history; it's a social history of a capital city and an affectionate look at the trials and tribulations of a football club in the early years of the last century. Each of these 3 strands could almost stand alone as a separate work, but the author has woven them together with great literary skill which conveys his deep love of his subject. I defy anyone not to be moved by this awesome work
