5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Must Read book, 28 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Road to Valour: Gino Bartali: Tour de France Legend and Italy's Secret World War Two Hero (Hardcover)
When my friend loaned me this book it sort of came with an apology for not being the Merckx or Coppi bographies and I knew very little of Gino Bartali's achievements or history so I did not know what to expect.
You can read a more in depth review of the book in the previous reviews but for me once I had begun to read it I did not want to stop.As you would expect being a kee cyclist I have read many many biographies of riders and whilst this mainly detail their careers too date this one goes so much deeper into not only what GB achieved but how he put his life on the line for others. This book is not only about a great cyclist but more than that a great man.I can categorically say that this book is the best sports book I have ever read and possibly the best book I have ever read.
In these times of recession none of us can afford to waste money so we all have to be careful what we purchase but I can tell you that if you are interested in buying this book it is well worth buying.
GB's story is one that should be portrayed in a feature film of his life.
