Overview

Bertie Mee: An Officer and a Gentleman examines the life, management style, and relationships of the man who helped to lay the foundations of the modern Arsenal. It studies the club's years in decline, the achievements of the early '70s, and the surprisingly swift descent into the relegation battles and in-fighting that dogged Mee's final seasons at Highbury. It also acknowledges Mee's innovative work in the health service, his role in the emergence of Watford as one of the country's leading clubs, and reveals a devoted family man. Mee was an intensely private individual, yet with the cooperation of his family and through interviews with many of his former colleagues, players, and friends, Bertie Mee: An Officer and a Gentleman offers a remarkable in-depth look at a football legend.
