The Team That Wouldn't Die: The Story of the Busby Babes by John Roberts
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


6 February 2008 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Munich air disaster in which twenty-three people, including eight of Matt Busby's 'Babes', lost their lives. Roberts' moving tribute remains a classic of football literature which powerfully captures the essence of the game in another era. Updated with new interviews and material, this book is the definitive account of the team that would not die. Published for the 50th anniversary of the Munich air crash (06/02/08), this book is a football classic, which compliments Aurum's sports classics list. The author is well-respected journalist. It includes new interviews and updated epilogue. It is perennially emotive and important subject for football fans, especially in Manchester. John Roberts is a retired journalist. He previously wrote for the Independent, Guardian and Daily Mail and the Stockport Express. He lives in Stockport. 'An inspiring as well as tragic story...a first-class reporting job.' Manchester Evening News '...super idea, beaverish research and unaffected style' Ian Wooldridge, Daily Mail 'Moving and commendably unsentimental' Daily Telegraph
