Legends Of United by David Meek

Book Description

When Matt Busby took over at Manchester United at the end of the Second World War, the club was in turmoil, the ground had been bombed. Within a few years, the Reds were to become one of the most formidable sides in England. Then, in February 1958, came the Munich air crash which took the lives of so many Busby Babes, including the incomparable Duncan Edwards. It was a disaster that was felt around the world. Yet Busby, who suffered in intensive care for weeks afterwards, built a new side to challenge once again for the highest honours. The famous triumvirate of Best, Law and Charlton would guide the club to cups, league titles and in 1968 help United become the first English club to win the European Cup. This fascinating book features interviews with many of the greatest stars of that period, as well as those who worked behind the scenes, to provide a brilliant portrait of the time when United moved from being one of the major football teams in Manchester to being a worldwide sporting institution.
