Customer Review

on 8 January 2012
Quite simply the BEST book I have ever read about football.
It makes me feel tired even trying to fathom the mammoth amount of hours Kuper must have put in painfully researching this masterpiece of literary excellence.
As well as a football story and important history lesson, it is an amazing insight into the psyche of our clog-wearing cousins across the North Sea as they faced up to their unwelcome Nazi lodgers.
Right from the start it is a brutally honest assessment of the Netherlanders' struggles, never once trying to pretend that they were a nation unified in complete resistance to their unwanted guests, especially when it came to protecting the precarious existence of the native Jewish population.
I can't recommend this book enough and, as previously stated, I am still in awe at the intensity of research which must have gone into bringing this to press. Utter genius.
