The definitive book
on 6 July 2013
This is a fascinating account of the decade following the Munich Disaster. The book begins at the moment Jimmy Murphy learns of the air crash in Munich and closes at the celebrations of United's European Cup triumph. Although this period has been covered before, it has never been written about in such detail.
The book's great success is McCartney's narrative style, which makes you feel you are there, reliving the tragedies and the triumphs. It is both a fascinating and enjoyable read. In common with the previous books that I have read by Iain McCartney, the account is built upon extensive research and attention to detail.
I'd recommend this book to United fans young and old, and to anyone who loves football. This is the definitive work on United's rise from the wreckage.
