This review is from: White Storm: 100 Years of Real Madrid (Hardcover)
This is definitely one of the best football books i have read, and there are a few! Ball provides a superb outline of all the cultural, social and political background of Madrid but combines this with wonderful descriptions of famous games (such as the 7-3 European Cup Final win over Frankfurt) and players (most notably Alfredo Di Stefano and Raul.) The balance is perfect and every story leaves you wanting to know even more about the worlds greatest club, love them or hate them, it is a most wonderfull insight into their hundred years.
