5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 22 Sep 2013
This review is from: Children of the Revolution (Paperback)
A period that is precious to Villa fans who lived through it, this book captures the emotion and wrangles that typified this part of Villa's history. It covers the period from the boardroom revolution of '68 through to the cusp of Villa's best post war achievements. The balanced reference to the memories of those who lived through the trials and tribulations of relegation to the Third Division, followed by the rise that was started by Vic Crowe and taken to its' conclusion by the Great Man himself (Ron Saunders) combined with more journalistic reporting gives the book a great "feel" to it. I would heartily recommend this book as it evoked many a memory in me and came with the same emotional attachment to Aston Villa that Peter Morris achieved with his book The First 100 Years.

My bias has always meant that I've thought that Villa are a special football club. This, the Peter Morris book mentioned above and the Terry Weir photographic representation of that era merely confirms that I am right!! A great read that I could barely put down.
