  • "Not only the best book on Munich, but one of the very best books on the United. I presumed there was nothing new to say on the crash, but David Hall proved me completely wrong. It's a totally refreshing account, and Hall captures brilliantly the atmosphere of Manchester in those winter days of 1958."

    Michael Crick
  • "Almost everything we've ever read about Munich has been from the point of view of the victims and the survivors - so David Hall's book is a welcome and fascinating record of what it was like to be an 11-year-old Mancunian whose team had its heart ripped out on a foreign airfield. It is the mass of telling detail which makes this book so interesting... intimate and personal."

    Chris Maume, The Independent
  • "Where David Hall's deeply humbling book differs, is that he offers a supporter's perspective of one of the most intimate tragedies of post-war Britain, one which united an entire nation, irrespective of one's club loyalties, in grief. [A] heart-rending tribute to a side that had become great ambassadors for club and country - both on and off the pitch."

  • "Fitting tribute to a sport's tragic loss"
