Dozens of interviews with Gunners players past and present are used to dissect the myths and conjecture which surround many of Arsenal's epoch-defining games

George Male, Frank McLintock, Alan Smith, Anders Limpar, Patrick Vieira, and Robert Pires are just a few of the great names who add their insights to legendary occasions such as the 1930 "Zeppelin Final," the 1953 title decider against Burnley, the decisive Stoke semi of 1971, the Littlewooods Cup win against Liverpool in '87, Anfield '89, Parma '94, and the fire-and-brimstone clashes against Manchester United in the first half of Arsene Wenger's spell as manager. This book also assesses the impact and legacy of such key figures as Sir Henry Norris, Herbert Chapman, and Arsene Wenger. Throughout the book, fresh light is cast on Arsenal's historic rivalries—and the truth is revealed about the dramatic rise and fall of both Bertie Mee and George Graham.

Jon Spurling is the author of Rebels for the Cause: The Alternative History of Arsenal, Highbury: The Story of Arsenal in N5, and Death Or Glory: The Dark History of the World Cup. He has also contributed to Arsenal's official matchday program, Four Four Two, When Saturday Comes, and the Blizzard.
