From the cover: Here, in words and photographs, are the moments in British sporting history that remain etched in the memory for ever, from the famous prize-fight between Tom Sayers and John Heenan in 1860 to Brian Cloughs dramatic resignation in 1993. In between are such legendary achievements as Fred Perrys win in the 1934 Wimbledon singles final, Englands heroic regaining of the Ashes under Len Hutton in 1953, the 1966 soccer World Cup triumph and the gold medals for Coe and Ovett in the 1980 Olympics.
Over a dozen different sports are featured, with each moment vividly evoked in either a contemporary or a modern account by a leading sports writer. With its sharp, stylish writing and dramatic photographs, Great Moments in British Sport is the perfect gift book for all sports fans.
