Rate this:
Building on the success of War Hammers, this book chronicles how the wartime conditions obliged the club to develop the outlook and approach that would give rise to its most successful period (from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s) and how the culture of the current incarnation of West Ham's style and support were established in the dark days of the 1940s. A detailed account of the Hammers' 1940 War Cup victory is included, as well as biographies of most of the players who played for the club between 1939 and 1945. Seminal matches are analyzed together with the power, politics, and intrigue of wartime soccer.
