Overview

On February 6, 1958, a plane took off from a snowy Munich airport carrying probably the finest club side the world has ever known. Moments later, the aircraft crashed, killing some of the most legendary names in British soccer. This book is dedicated to those players—Roger Byrne, Tommy Taylor, the mighty Duncan Edwards and the others whose lives were cut off in their prime—and their indomitable manager, Sir Matt Busby. Max Arthur has sought out all the players who survived the crash and spoken to the relatives and friends of those who died. From these interviews, sometimes serious but often humorous, he has captured their remarkable spirit and created a unique portrait of all the Busby Babes.
