Description

The Bodyline series of Test matches between Australia and England in 1932-33 is still the most sensational Test series in history. Under their cold and ruthless captain Douglas Jardine, England's fast bowlers, led by the Nottingham express bowler Harold Larwood, bowled bouncers at the Australian batsmen-Don Bradman in particular -and won the series 4-1. But such was public outrage in Australia that the Englishmen's tactics were condemned even in political circles. Not only the cricket authorities but the governments of both countries were involved in urgent exchanges. There was an outside chance that Australia would withdraw from what was then known as the British Empire.In the 70 years since Bodyline was unleashed, many books and articles have appeared, television programs too. Now that all the participating cricketers are dead, cricket historian David Frith has delved deeply into a vast range of archival material, adding numerous pictures and many previously unpublished or little-known stories to compile the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject.
