5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Olympic History, 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London's Olympic Follies: The Madness and Mayhem of the 1908 London Games: A Cautionary Tale (Kindle Edition)
Downloaded this `free' during the 2012 Games as it was topical. So glad I did. It is a fascinating read detailing the ill feeling, mistrust & disputes between Team USA & the GB teams & British Officials at the time. Given recent events at 2012 between USA & China in the swimming it was interesting to note that USA has not curtailed their enthusiasm for winning at all costs since 1908! Read about how the USA `Won' the Marathon. It is a fantastically detailed account of those involved, their back grounds & what happened to them in the aftermath. Find out who won the Tug-of-war Gold Medal! My only niggle was that photos of some of the Athletes are right at the back of the book, & I mean right at the back! I would suggest either moving them to the appropriate pages or inserting a quick Link within the Kindle version. That beside this is a wonderful read which I found I could not put down.
